- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 (5 oz) bag baby mixed greens
- 1/2 cup toasted pumpkin seeds
- Slice 1/2-inch slice off top of oranges and slice enough off bottom of oranges so they won't roll. Grate 1/4 tsp zest from TOP sliced off an orange.
- Carve pulp out of all oranges (using a grapefruit knife works well [or even a grapefruit spoon with serrated tip might work])
- Section the pulp of four oranges (1-1/2 cups)removing them whole from the membranes; set aside. Juice rest of pulp (1/4 cup); set aside.
- Cut a jack-o'-lantern face on each orange.
- Whisk together reserved orange zest and juice with vinegar, maple syrup, mustard, lemon juice, ginger, salt and pepper. Whisk oil in until combined.
- Toss greens and reserved orange pieces with 2 to 3 Tbsp. dressing. Stuff orange shells with salad; top with pumpkin seeds.
