tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients
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. Medium dice the potatoes. Keeping half the rosemary sprigs whole, pick the leaves off the remaining stems; finely chop the leaves. Peel 2 cloves of garlic. Keep 1 clove whole. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate the remaining clove into a paste. Peel the onion; cut into 1/2-inch rounds, keeping the layers intact. Quarter the zucchini lengthwise. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores. Place the onion rounds, quartered zucchini, and prepared peppers in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; turn to coat. Finely chop the capers. Finely chop the almonds

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, butter, whole rosemary sprigs, and whole garlic clove on one side of the foil. Add 2 tablespoons of water. Drizzle with 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. Carefully discard the rosemary sprigs and garlic clove. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Grill & finish the vegetables

Meanwhile, reserving the bowl, grill the seasoned onion rounds 8 to 9 minutes per side, or until charred and softened. Grill the seasoned zucchini 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until charred and softened. Grill the seasoned peppers 5 to 7 minutes, turning occasionally, or until charred and softened. Transfer to a cutting board. Roughly chop the grilled onion and grilled peppers. Cut the grilled zucchini into 1/2-inch pieces. Transfer the vegetables to the reserved bowl; add half the vinegar, a drizzle of olive oil, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
