Orange and Fennel Salad, a Sicilian Specialty
This is one of the most typical recipes from Sicily. Despite being a fresh salad, it is a winter recipe. Why should you prepare it? It is fast and makes a healthy light meal with a few simple ingredients.
Servings 2 people
- 2 oranges
- 2 medium-sized fennel bulbs
- 2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
- salt and pepper
- Extra: fresh fennel fronds to taste
Peel the oranges as I have described above, cut them into thin slices;
Clean the fennel bulbs; then discard the external, tough fronds and the stalks; set aside some fennel fronds to garnish;
Wash and dry the fennel bulbs. Use a mandolin or upright grater to shred the fennel;
In a plate, combine the shredded fennel and orange slices. Dress them with oil, salt, and pepper. Garnish with some roughly broken stalks to taste.
