Serves 2

What You’ll Need

  • 1 Orange
  • 1 Grapefruit
  • 2 Naartjies/Clementines
  • 1 Red onion, finely sliced
  • 1 Fennel bulb, sliced very thinly
  • 2-3 Celery stalks, thinly sliced at an angle
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 Tbs red or white wine vinegar


Whisk together a good glug of olive oil and the vinegar. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.Peel all the citrus fruits, easiest is to cut off a thin slice off the top and bottom of the fruit.

Then set it standing upright and cut carefully from top to bottom. Use a small serrated knife if possible.

Now slice the peeled fruit crosswise into discs. Arrange at random!

Now scatter the fennel, onion and celery overtop. Also include the fennel fronds/leaves dotted here and there.

Spoon over the whisked vinaigrette and sprinkle over seasoning as desired.

Serve and enjoy!
