Prep Time: 10min | Cook Time: 30min

  1. To prepare the croutons, slice the fingerling potatoes into coins about ½ inch thick. Spray them with the olive oil spray and arrange them on a baking sheet. Place into a preheated 400 F (204 C) oven. Roast the potatoes for 20-25 minutes or until they are crispy and golden.  While the potatoes are cooking, mix the cumin, salt, black pepper, and oregano together in a small bowl.  When the potatoes are done season them with the spice mix.
  2. To char the corn, remove the husk and place the corn over an open flame, or a grill, or under a broiler for 3-5 minutes turning often until the corn is blistered and black. Allow the corn to cool slightly before cutting the corn kernels off the cob.
  3. For the salad, simply arrange a bed of arugula into a serving dish, and top with toasted pumpkin seeds, charred corn kernels, and potato croutons.
  4. To make the dressing, place all the ingredients together in a bowl and whisk until smooth and creamy.
  5. To serve drizzle the dressing over the top of the salad and enjoy.
