Using a sharp knife, cut the rind and white pith from the oranges; cut into 1/3-inch wheels. In a large bowl, toss the fennel, radicchio, arugula and onion. Season with salt and pepper; add the orange slices, drizzle with oil and vinegar and toss gently. Top with the olives.

Make 3 Hours Ahead

Mix the fennel, radicchio and arugula a few hours before the party, cover and refrigerate. Serve half the greens tossed with half the oranges, onion, and oil and vinegar. Top with half the olives just before guests arrive. Replenish as needed.
