An updated old favorite!
1 large red onion, cut into wedges*
2 large red bell peppers, seeded and cut into thirds
1 pound sweet Italian sausage links
3 Tbsp. honey
3 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
2 to 3 handfuls of baby arugula
*Cut the onion wedges so that the root end is still intact on each wedge. It will make the onion wedges easier to grill and help keep them from falling apart on the grill.
Preheat the grill. Mix together the balsamic vinegar and honey in a small bowl and set aside.
Coat the onion, peppers and sausages with a little olive oil. Salt the peppers and onion. Coat the grill grates with a little olive oil. Put the onion wedges on the grill and cover the grill. Let the onions roast for 5 minutes, or until they are a little charred. Turn the onions and move them to a cooler part of the grill to finish.
If your grill has two levels, place the sausages on the top part of the grill and the peppers directly below them. Done this way, as the sausages drip juice and fat, it will fall on the peppers, flavoring them while simultaneously preventing flare-ups. If your grill does not have two levels, put the peppers on the hottest part of the grill and the sausages on the coolest. Cover and grill everything for 15 to 20 minutes or so, periodically checking and turning the sausages and peppers as needed. Towards the end of cooking, baste the sausages, peppers and onions with the honey and balsamic mixture.
