This is a great family style mixed grill platter perfect for the summer.  It's pretty easy to prepare and has something for everyone to enjoy.  
This recipe feeds 4 to 6 people.

Ingredients:
1 lb Baby Spinach
1 each Red Onion (sliced in 1/2 inch pieces)
1 cup Red Grape Tomatoes
1 each Medium Cucumber (sliced in half moons)
6 whole Corn on the Cob
6 each Hatch Chile Pepper
1 cup Baby Carrots (cut in 1/2)
1 lb 16/20 Shrimp
1/4 cup Butter (melted)
1 Lemon
1 lb Italian Sausage Links
1.5lb Flat Iron Steak
3 cloves Garlic (minced)
1 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
1 each Gala Apple (sliced)
1.5 Tbs Olive Oil
4 oz Balsamic Vinaigrette 

Instructions:
1. Marinate the steak in 1 tbs of the olive oil and 1/2 of the minced garlic
2. Place the shrimp in the melted butter with the remaining garlic and the juice from the lemon
3. Rub the remaining olive oil on the red onions and hatch chile peppers


START GRILLING
Instructions:
1. Place the Italian sausage links on the grill

(these will take about 20-25 minutes so get them started first for about 7 minutes)
2. Add the corn, hatch chiles, and the onions to the grill
3. Add the flat iron steak and cook until medium rare to medium
4. Remove the items from the grill as they are ready
5. Once everything is done, add the shrimp
(the shrimp will go quickly so let the steak and sausage rest a bit while these are cooking)
6. Peel the corn and cut in 1/2
7. Rough chop the red onion and the chile peppers
8. Slice the sausage and the steak


PLATE
Instructions:
1. On a large platter, place the spinach, tomatoes and carrots
2. Add the red onion, chiles, sliced apples, steak, sausage and shrimp on top
3. Place the corn around the platter
4. Drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette
5. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese

EAT & ENJOY!
