Cut onions into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices. Insert toothpick through rings of each to hold slice together.

In bowl, combine garlic, 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the vinegar, oregano, parsley, 1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and pepper; add onions and turn to coat.

Reserving vinegar mixture, place onions on greased grill over medium-low heat; close lid and cook until tender, brushing often with vinegar mixture, about 10 minutes per side. Serve drizzled with remaining vinegar.

Additional information :

Tip: To cook the onions in the oven, omit toothpicks and arrange slices in large shallow baking dish; pour vinegar mixture over top. Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven, turning once, until tender and glazed, about 20 minutes.
