  1. Cut off both ends of each orange with a sharp knife. Following the curve of the orange, cut away the peel and white pith. Gently separate the orange into sections with your fingers. Remove any excess white pith that remains.
  2. In a mixing bowl combine mustard, balsamic vinegar, parsley and juice. Add orange sections and sliced fennel. Stir and serve.
