Orange + Olive
Acidic citrus can be tricky: The list of foods to (usually) avoid pairing it with ranges from cheese to eggs. Olives, though, are a natural match for sweet oranges; the fruit helps temper the brininess of the olives.

Try it: Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten makes his own olive mix by marinating large, green olives with fennel, orange and some crushed red chili flakes. Another idea: Reverse the dish, and make a citrus salad garnished with olives.
