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

Preheat your grill to maintain a temperature of 450-500°F. Carefully oil the grill grates. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Quarter the zucchini lengthwise; place in a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; turn to coat. Roughly chop the peppers; place in a large bowl. Drain and rinse the beans. In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise and as much of the chile paste as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be; season with salt and pepper. 

Grill & chop the zucchini
2 Grill & chop the zucchini

Grill the seasoned zucchini 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until charred and softened. Transfer to a cutting board; cut crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces. Transfer to the bowl of chopped peppers and stir to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Make the foil packet beans & finish the zucchini
3 Make the foil packet beans & finish the zucchini

Place a large piece of foil on a work surface. Place the drained beans and half the salsa verde on one side of the foil. Season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Fold the foil in half over the dressed beans. Fold the three open edges inwards to completely seal the packet. Grill 6 to 8 minutes, or until the beans are cooked through. Remove from the grill and carefully open the foil packet. Transfer to the bowl of chopped zucchini and peppers. Add the remaining salsa verde; toss to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Grill the pork & serve your dish
4 Grill the pork & serve your dish

Meanwhile, pat the pork dry with paper towels; drizzle with olive oil and season on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). Grill 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium (the center may still be slightly pink), or until browned and cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Transfer to a cutting board and let rest at least 5 minutes. Once rested, slice the grilled pork crosswise. Serve the sliced pork with the finished beans and zucchini. Top the pork with the Calabrian mayo. Enjoy!

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