Instructions

  1. In a large salad bowl, mix together the red onion and vinegar. Stir, then leave to marinate for about 10 minutes.
  2. Peel the oranges with a sharp, serrated knife, removing all the pith. Slice into segments, removing all the membrane.

Toss together, then serve.Cook's tip: If you can't find chick peas, use a can of mixed beans instead.
