Salt and black pepper, to taste
2pounds (about 8) sweet or hot Italian sausages, pricked well all over

2. Grill the sausages and vegetables for 5 minutes or until they have good grill marks. Turn and continue grilling for 5 minutes more or until the vegetables are tender and the sausage is cooked through; transfer the vegetables to a cooler spot on the fire if they start to burn.

3. In a small bowl, stir together the vinegar and honey. Brush the sausages and vegetables on both sides with the glaze. Cook for 1 minute. Turn and cook 1 minute more.

4. Mound arugula on each of 4 dinner plates. Top with bell peppers, onion, and sausage. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon
olive oil. Tony Rosenfeld
