Here’s a tasty recipe using fennel bulb: quick and easy, a side dish. Enjoy.

Insalata siciiana: Sicilian orange and fennel salad

Prep time: 15 mins | Total time: 15 mins | Servings: 6


For 4 people as an accompaniment

  • 3 oranges
  • 1 large (or 2 small) fennel bulbs
  • 15 black olives (kalamata or similar)


  • Peel the oranges, making sure that no pith (white part) is left. Cut into thin slices and place on a serving dish.
  • With a mandolin, slice the fennel bulb very finely on top of the orange slices.
  • Decorate with the olives.
  • Dress with salt and olive oil.


Best made just before serving (the fennel tends to go dry).
