Sicilian Orange and Fennel Bulb Salad

Amazing Sicilian Orange and Fennel Bulb Salad! I have a Sicilian Pasta dish that I love! In the process of researching traditional Sicilian dishes, I came across an Orange and Fennel Salad on Wikipedia so I decided to put my own spin on it. The result was fantastic! I took it on a picnic with my family and everyone loved it.
