Herrings, oranges and olives salad

The herrings, orange and olives salad is a poor dish of the Sicilian cuisine.

Oranges could be found everywhere, and the coast of Palermo was called Conca d’Oro because of the multitude of orange trees full of golden fruits; the herrings are a blue fish, never particularly valued by the markets (fortunately) and therefore of low cost and easy to get for everyone, despite the great nutritional value of its meat.

This is a typical salad with a very particular taste that mixes soft and decisive flavours together.

In Palermo, it is prepared especially during the holiday seasons, and it can be served either as an appetizer, as a side dish or even as a main course.

You’ll be able to find different versions of this salad, for example with sliced fennel instead of olives: in both ways, this salad is simply amazing!
