    Sicilian Winter Salad

    Fennel is a winter vegetable and oranges were traditionally only found in winter. In Sicily, Italy, they prepare a beautifully refreshing salad with just these two ingredients. My Sicilian friends, John and Tina, introduced me to it in Sydney and I often prepare it for my friends. You can serve it at the beginning of a meal, between dishes to clean the palate or at the end of the meal, like a sort of pre-dessert. It's always a hit and it's so easy to make!

    Ingredients
    2 fennels (the bulb, no stem or leaves)
    3 oranges (blood oranges are very good for this recipe, see picture below left)
    salt
    chili flakes
    olive oil

    Preparation
    • Clean fennels by discarding outer layer, top and bottom
    • Chop fennels into quarters
    • Slice fennels thinly
    • Peel oranges
    • Cut oranges into small pieces
    • Get rid of orange pips
    • Dress with salt, chili flakes (optional) and olive oil
