Mexican Broiled Corn Salad


Mexican Broiled Corn Salad



Preheat broiler to high.

Place corn and onion on a foil-lined baking sheet. Broil 4 inches from heat for 15 minutes, turning occasionally. Cut bell peppers in half lengthwise; discard seeds and membranes. Place bell pepper halves, skin sides up, on baking sheet with corn and onion. Broil an additional 13 minutes or until all vegetables are charred in spots, turning corn and onion occasionally (do not turn bell peppers). Place bell peppers in a paper bag. Fold to close tightly; let stand 10 minutes. Peel and coarsely chop peppers. Cut kernels from ears of corn. Coarsely chop onion. Place bell peppers, corn, onion, oregano, and 0.125 tsp salt in a medium bowl; toss gently.

Combine 0.125 tsp salt, tomatoes, radishes, 1.5 tsp oil, and cilantro in a medium bowl; toss to coat.

Place 2 Tbs pumpkinseeds in a mini food processor; process until finely ground. Add remaining 0.25 tsp salt, remaining 3 Tbs oil, jalapeno, and the next 5 ingredients (through garlic); process until smooth.

Place 0.5 C corn mixture in each of 8 shallow bowls, and top each serving with about 2 Tbs tomato mixture, about 1 Tbs dressing, about 1.5 Tbs cheese, and about 1 tsp pumpkinseeds.
