    Slice off the bottoms and tops of the oranges.  Stand the fruit on a flat end, and using a boning knife, or thin flexible knife, cut down the sides, removing the peel and white pith.

    Slice each orange into 1/2 inch slices and arrange on a platter. Sprinkle the onions and oregano over the oranges.  Whisk together the oil and vinegar, and pour over the oranges on the platter.
