    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

    Preheat your grill to maintain a temperature of 450-500°F. Carefully oil the grill grates. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Peel the onion and cut into 1/2-inch rounds, keeping the layers intact. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, zest the lemon to get 2 teaspoons. Quarter and deseed the lemon. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds. Thoroughly wash your hands, knife, and cutting board immediately after handling. In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, lemon zest, and the juice of 2 lemon wedges; season with salt and pepper. Whisk to combine.

    Assemble the foil packet & grill the potatoes
    2 Assemble the foil packet & grill the potatoes

    Place a large piece of foil on a work surface. Place the diced potatoes on one side of the foil. Add 1/4 cup of water. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to combine. Fold the foil in half over the potatoes. Fold the three open edges inwards to completely seal the packet. Grill 14 to 16 minutes, or until the water has cooked off and the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the grill and carefully open the foil packet. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    3 Grill the peppers & onion

    Meanwhile, place the halved peppers and onion rounds in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; turn to coat. Reserving the bowl, grill the seasoned peppers 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until charred and softened. Grill the seasoned onion 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until charred and softened. Transfer to a cutting board.

    Grill the steaks
    4 Grill the steaks

    Pat the steaks dry with paper towels; drizzle with olive oil and season on both sides with salt, pepper, and the spice blend. Grill 3 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare (125°F), or until browned and cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Transfer to a cutting board; let rest at least 5 minutes.

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 145°F for steak. Cook the steaks an additional 2 to 3 minutes to achieve this.

Find the lines of muscle (or grain) on the rested steaks; slice crosswise against the grain. Serve the sliced steaks with the potato salad. Top the chicken with the sauce. Garnish the potato salad with the almonds. Enjoy!
