Makes 4-6 servings

  • 1 lb. sweet Italian sausages (approximately 6 links)
  • 1 large green pepper
  • 1 large red pepper
  • 2 tbsp. Italian dressing
  • 1 large red onion
  • 2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 8 large basil leaves

Preheat the George Forman grill.

Place the sausages on the grill, carefully close the lid and cook for 8 -12 minutes, or until the sausages are cooked through.

Remove and let rest while grilling the vegetables.

Cut the tops and bottoms of the peppers off and place in a large mixing bowl.

Slice the bodies of the peppers into four sections, carefully remove the seeds and pith, then place in the bowl. Toss with the Italian dressing.

Arrange the peppers on the grill, close the lid and grill for 10 minutes.

Remove, transfer to a cutting board and allow to cool slightly. Slice the red onion into 4-5 round disks. Keep each piece together, then brush with the remaining Italian dressing from the mixing bowl.

Place on the grill, close the lid and cook for about 7 minutes. While cooking the onion, cut the pepper into 1 inch pieces and place in the mixing bowl.

Cut the grilled sausages lengthwise in quarters then chop into 1-inch pieces. Add the sausages to the mixing bowl then toss with the balsamic vinegar and basil leaves.

Remove the onions from the grill to the cutting board, cut into 1 inch pieces and combine with the rest of the ingredients.

Mix well, then serve with a side salad and some spicy mustard.
