with Oranges and Capers
by Kate Heyhoe
3 medium oranges
1 large fennel bulb, in julienned slivers
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
1 tablespoon capers, rinsed and drained
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
Dash red pepper flakes or fresh ground black pepper (optional)
Peel the oranges, removing all white pith. Slice the oranges about 1/4-inch thick and set out on a platter. Arrange the fennel slivers on top. Sprinkle on the parsley and capers. Drizzle with olive oil, vinegar and finish with a dash of pepper to taste. Refrigerate from 1 to 6 hours for the flavors to blend. Serve at room temperature or just slightly chilled.
