 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3                    navel oranges
    3                    blood oranges
    1      medium        red onion -- sliced into
                         paper-thin rings
    8      large         fresh basil leaves -- shredded
    3      tablespoons   extra-virgin olive oil
                         Freshly ground black pepper
 
 Peel the oranges, and remove all the pith. Slice into 1/4-inch-thick
 rounds. Arrange the slices on a large, shallow platter. Lay the onion
 slices on top of the oranges and sprinkle with the shredded basil. Drizzle
 the olive oil over the salad, and season generously with black pepper.
 Cover and let stand at room temperature for at least 2 hours before serving
 for the flavors to marry.
