Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Peel oranges carefully with a paring knife, cutting away all the white pith as well as the membrane that covers them on the outside. Working on a plate to help capture all the juice, slice the oranges into rounds, as thin as you can manage.

  • Arrange the orange slices on a serving platter; reserve the juice. Distribute onion over the oranges, then arrange olives over the top and finally the anchovy fillets.

  • Pour the orange juice and lemon juice over the salad and drizzle with oil. Sprinkle with pepper.

  • Let the salad stand at room temperature for about 30 minutes to let the flavors develop. Serve sprinkled with fennel fronds, if desired.

Also since we have indigestion issues in our family with raw onion I very lightly cook the onion before adding it. It's a fabulous dish! Pros: Easy delicious different Read More

??? What do you do with the anchovies? Garnish or blend in with juice? I have not made the recipe because the preparation is unclear. Does not look very well. Where's the greens? Read More
