    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Preheat your grill to maintain a temperature of 450-500°F. Carefully oil the grill grates. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the onion; cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick rounds, keeping the layers intact. Quarter the zucchini lengthwise. Place in a bowl. Add 2 teaspoons of olive oil and season with salt and pepper; turn to coat. Thinly slice the lettuce. Place in a separate large bowl. Add 2 teaspoons of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. In a separate bowl, combine the mayonnaise and harissa paste; season with salt and pepper.

    2 Grill the pork & vegetables

    Pat the pork dry with paper towels; drizzle with 2 teaspoons of olive oil and season on both sides with salt, pepper, and the spice blend. Grill the seasoned pork 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. Grill the onion rounds 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until charred and tender. Transfer to a cutting board.Grill the seasoned zucchini 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until lightly charred and softened.
