What You’ll Need
- 1 Orange

- 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!
