Italian Orange Salad - refreshing!

Here in the Midwest, naval oranges are in season, and now is a great time to try an easy and flavorful salad using them.   It’ll remind you of spring!

My grandmother used to make this salad, and so did my mother, and my Aunt Minnie passed the recipe along for posterity in our family cookbook. So refreshing!

Some may know this as a Sicilian Orange Salad, and well, my grandmother came from Sicily, so they’re likely one and the same.  One version served in Italy is with red onion and fennel, but as far as I can recall, my grandmother never made it that way.

The servings can easily be doubled, tripled, quadrupled . . ..

I hope you enjoy!
