These sliced onions are grilled with a fantastic balsamic sauce. 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.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds (900 g) red onions
  • 1/2 cup (120 mL) fresh parsley (chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons (30 mL) balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon (15 mL) olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon (7.5 mL) fresh rosemary (chopped)
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • Dash salt
  • Dash pepper

Steps to Make It

1. Heat vinegar, garlic, ​and rosemary in a saucepan until hot. Don't boil. Let stand 20 minutes.

2. Warm oil in a separate pan.

4. Lay out on a cookie sheet and brush both sides with oil.
