  • 3 large navel oranges
  • 1 medium fennel bulb, finely chopped, plus 1 tablespoon chopped fennel fronds
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1/3 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 4 large fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt


  1. Cut a thin slice from the top and bottom of each orange; stand orange upright on a cutting board. With a knife, cut off peel and outer membrane from orange. Working over a bowl to catch juices, cut along the membrane of each segment to remove fruit. Finely chop oranges; add to bowl with reserved juices.
  2. Add remaining ingredients; toss to coat. Refrigerate, covered, until serving.
