Instructions

  1. Place the fennel in a bowl and toss well with the lemon juice. That will keep the fennel from turning brown.
  2. Peel the oranges using a sharp knife, making sure all the white pith is removed.
  3. Cut the oranges in half, then slice each half into 1/2 centimeter (1/4 inch) wide slices.
  4. Toss the oranges, fennel and olives together with the olive oil.

  5. Place in a serving bowl, salt to taste and serve.
