Bland veggie trays tend to lose out over sugary treats; serve this dish instead. This salad pops with color and texture from juicy citrus, creamy avocado, and crisp jicama. Dark, bumpy kale fits the mood, but you can substitute any lettuce you like. We love the pink hue of Cara Cara oranges in the salad, but regular navel or even blood oranges (in keeping with the spooky theme) would also work.
Serves 8 (serving size: about 3/4 cup)
1. Peel oranges, and cut crosswise into rounds. Set orange rounds aside.
2. Combine oil, orange juice, and next 5 ingredients (through pepper) in a bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add avocado to juice mixture; toss to coat.
3. Place kale in a large bowl. Massage kale with hands for 2 minutes or until slightly wilted. Add orange rounds, avocado mixture, and jicama; toss. Sprinkle with toasted pumpkin seeds.
