Balsamic Grilled Red Onions

Author: Canadian Living

Don't forget onions as a dish on their own. Grilling brings out their sweetness, balanced by the balsamic vinegar seasoning to make a great side dish for grilled meats.

  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 red onions
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Method

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.
