    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients & make the spicy mayo
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the spicy mayo

    Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Preheat your grill to maintain a temperature of 450-500°F. Carefully oil the grill grates. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Thinly slice the cucumber into rounds. Place in a bowl; add the vinegar. Season with salt and pepper and stir to coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Combine the cabbage and scallions in a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; turn to coat. Halve the baguettes; drizzle with olive oil. Halve the lime crosswise; place in a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and turn to coat. In a separate bowl, combine the mayonnaise and as much of the sambal oelek as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be.

    Pat the pork dry with paper towels; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper on both sides. Grill 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium (the center may still be slightly pink), or until cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Transfer to a cutting board and let rest at least 5 minutes.

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 145°F for pork.

    Meanwhile, place a piece of foil on the grill; place the seasoned cabbage on top of the foil. Grill 7 to 8 minutes per side, or until lightly charred. Grill the halved lime, cut side down, 4 to 5 minutes, or until lightly charred. Grill the seasoned scallions 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until softened and charred. Grill the halved baguettes 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until toasted. Transfer to a cutting board.
