  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat.
  2. Whisk together red wine vinegar, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, oregano, basil, and olive oil in a small bowl. Arrange the tomato and onion slices on a serving platter, and pour dressing overtop. Allow to marinate at room temperature while you cook the sausages.
  3. Pierce the sausages with the tip of a sharp knife a few times, then place onto the grill. Cook until no longer pink in the center, turning them frequently so that they cook evenly and have lightly browned, about 15 minutes total. Serve on French rolls with marinated tomatoes and onions.

The marinade for the tomatoes is incredible. I doubled it and added a little more balsamic vinegar. I marinated 2 pints of cherry tomatoes cut in half with the red onion. I put it all in a bowl and let it set at room temp while we grilled the sausage. It went perfect with the Italian sausage! We didn't have french rolls, so we served it with Pasta Hot! Hot! Hot! from this site. I can't wait to try this again but on rolls. This one's a keeper especially over the summer months! Update: Made this again, but served it on rolls and OMG it's wonderful! Perfect for a quick and easy meal especially paired with a garden salad with balsamic vinaigrette dressing.

It was too cold out to grill, so I pan fried the sausages and topped them with the marinated tomato mixture. Great way to serve Italian sausage!

This was very good and I would definitely make it again. I made the tomatoes in the afternoon and just let them sit, covered, on the countertop. Next time I make this I’m going to dice the tomatoes and onions, rather than slicing them, which will make this more of a relish for the sausages. I also like the idea of using this for bruschetta, as suggested by another reviewer.

Everything was great. I did marinate tomatoes and onions a little longer, but they were great. Will use again, thanks

I was really suprised that something this simple can be that good!! I sauteed the onions in a bit of the oil mix because I dont like raw onion. then added the warm onions over the tomatoes and oil. Will definatley make again! thanks for sharing

Delicious!!! What a wonderful change from the usual peppers and onions with cheese. Very light, and simple. Awesome for a hot summer night.

I also used cherry tomatoes, and served on round flatbread (warmed up in the microwave so they wouldn't break when folded in half). So delicious! My bf and I couldn't stop talking about how good it was.
