How to Make It

Step 1    

Preheat the oven to 500°. On a rimmed baking sheet, drizzle the corn with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Season the ears with salt and pepper and roast for about 25 minutes, turning a few times, until the kernels are browned; let cool. Cut the kernels from the cobs and transfer to a bowl.

Step 2    

Turn the oven down to 400°. Spread the pumpkin seeds in a pie plate and bake for about 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Transfer to a plate to cool.

Step 3    

Put 1/2 cup of the corn kernels in a blender. Add the lime juice, sherry vinegar, sugar, hot sauce and cinnamon and puree. With the machine on, add the remaining 1/2 cup of olive oil in a thin stream and blend until emulsified. Scrape the vinaigrette into a bowl and season with salt and pepper.

Step 4    

In a large bowl, toss the remaining corn kernels with the arugula, avocados, red and yellow tomatoes and cucumbers. Add the vinaigrette and toss well. Mound the salad on a large platter, scatter the pumpkin seeds and crumbled cheese on top and serve.
