2tablespoons olive oil
Salt and black pepper, to taste
2pounds (about 8) sweet or hot Italian sausages, pricked well all over
3tablespoons balsamic vinegar
3tablespoons honey

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
