Coming late to this fray and responding to original Subject
Then you might find the following to work, as I do:
:ensure org-plus-contrib ; following http://emacs.stackexchange.com/questions/7890/org-plus-contrib-and-org-with-require-or-use-package
;; .. etc

I just discovered a bug in this advice that I suggested earlier in this thread.. I needed to fix the order of packages in the new-ret list that is returned. The bug was that the order of pkgs in new-ret was flipped compared to that in orig-ret.. so I needed to flip it back using reverse.
(defun modi/package-dependency-check-ignore (orig-ret)
"Remove the `black listed packages' from ORIG-RET.
Packages listed in the let-bound `pkg-black-list' will not be auto-installed
even if they are found as dependencies.
It is known that this advice is not effective when installed packages
asynchronously using `paradox'. Below is effective on synchronous
(let ((pkg-black-list '(org))
(dolist (pkg-struct orig-ret)
(setq pkg-name (package-desc-name pkg-struct))
(if (member pkg-name pkg-black-list)
(message (concat "Package `%s' will not be installed. "
(push pkg-struct new-ret)))

(setq new-ret (reverse new-ret))
