From Dorothy McNett's Recipe Book at

1/2 cup black oil-cured olives, pitted or not
1 teaspoon orange zest
pinches of crushed red pepper flakes
3 tablespoons best extra-virgin olive oil
3-4 sweet oranges
1 medium onion, peeled and thinly sliced
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt

Pit each olive and toss with the zest, red pepper flakes, and olive oil and let stand. Peel oranges and remove all white membrane. Thinly slice. Arrange, overlapping, on a flat serving dish. Sprinkle the onion with the salt and let stand for a few minutes. Rub the salt into the onions, rinse and press out the water. Spread the onion rings over the oranges, then the olive marinade. Serve.
