This cool and refreshing Sicilian salad is the perfect combination of citrus sweetness from the orange sections and the fresh fennel’s delicate and mild anise factor. Because fennel aids digestion, raw slices are frequently served as a digestivo, a digestive aid, at the end of an Italian meal. I like to add toasted almond slivers and sprinkle them on top to add another layer of flavor and more crunch. This simple, elegant salad pairs fabulously with Madrevite’s 100% Grechetto, Elve’.
