Finely slice the fennel with a mandolin slicer and place the slices in a bowl with water and ice. Peel the oranges to reveal the flesh by using a knife to remove the two ends and the peel, before removing the white membrane from the segments. Pit the olives and cut them in half. Prepare the citrus sauce by putting the lemon, grapefruit and orange juice into a bowl. Then add the oil in a drizzle as you beat the sauce with a balloon whisk to obtain an emulsion.

Season with salt and pepper. Take a serving dish where you will start to arrange the well drained fennel slices. Then add the orange segments and olives. Arrange the turkey slices, twisting them gently into a sort of bow, and now pour on the citrus sauce and garnish with some sprigs of wild fennel.
