Here’s a Sicilian orange salad that is classically served in winter, when oranges are at their best. It’s especially beautiful by incorporating a few blood oranges, but if you can’t find them, regular oranges are still delicious. And if you've never used it before, orange flower water is distilled from orange blossoms. It’s commonly used in Mediterranean countries and can be found in some gourmet supermarkets, or do a web search and order it online. Trust us, the flavor it adds is well worth it!
