  • 2 large bell peppers, seeded and quartered

  • 2 large red onions, cut into wedges

  • 3 cloves garlic, grated, divided

  • 1 teaspoon ground fennel seed

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • 1 pound sweet or hot Italian sausage links

  • 1 bunch scallions, trimmed

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley, plus more for garnish

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon, plus more for garnish

  • 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar

  • Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.

  2. Toss peppers, onions, half the garlic and fennel seed with 1 tablespoon oil in a large bowl.

  3. Oil the grill rack. Grill the peppers and onions, sausage and scallions, turning occasionally, until the vegetables are tender and slightly charred and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the sausage registers 165°F, about 4 minutes for the scallions, 8 minutes for the sausage and 10 to 12 minutes for the peppers and onions. Transfer to a clean cutting board. Slice the vegetables and sausage into 2-inch pieces.

  4. Whisk the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and garlic with parsley, tarragon, vinegar and salt in a medium bowl. Add the vegetables and toss to coat. Serve the vegetables with the sausage, topped with more parsley and tarragon, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
