This is a fantastic Halloween salad recipe for a potluck party because you can make it in advance. It's a great combination of sweet and savory, and it couldn't be a better color match for Halloween with all of the orange and red ingredients.
3 beets, fresh or canned
1 blood orange
4 carrots (shredded)
If using fresh beets, cook them in boiling water. Once the beets are cooked and their skins have been removed, dice them into bite-sized pieces. To the beets, add small sections of your blood orange, the shredded carrots and the seeds from your pomegranate. Toss together to create a colorful blood red and bright orange Halloween treat and add a little ginger-flavored dressing for a perfect light Halloween salad.
This dish is a great way to get the kids to eat healthy on Halloween. It also makes a fun side dish for an adult Halloween bash as well. The name makes it super spooky so have a label on the serving dish so everyone knows they are eating witch hair!
2 cups alfalfa sprouts
5 large carrots, grated
Italian vinaigrette dressing
Start by cutting the avocado into large chunks. In a bowl, mash the alfalfa sprouts and avocado together (lumps are OK). On a large serving platter arrange the grated carrots in an even layer.
Then, using a spoon, create small balls (walnut size) out of the avocado/sprout mixture. Place the balls on top of the grated carrots and dress with the vinaigrette.
Peel banana and cut in half. Use chocolate chips or hot fudge to create a face on each half of banana. Peel each clementine by hand. Take a piece of celery and cut into small pieces to make stems then insert into top of the clementine.
