Grilled Red Onions

These sliced onions are grilled with a fantastic balsamic sauce that enhances its flavor. Serve these up as they are or use these onions in any recipe that calls for them. They really do compliment a grilled hamburger or steak.

  • 2 pounds red onions

Heat vinegar, garlic and rosemary in a sauce pan until hot. Don’t boil. Let stand 20 minutes. Warm oil in a separate pan. Slice onions into 1/2 inch slices. Lay out on a cookie sheet and brush both sides with oil. Sprinkle salt and pepper over onions. Grill over medium heat for 4-6 minutes. Let the onion slices slightly char.
