8
plum tomatoes, cut in half crosswise
1
onion, sliced into 1/2-inch-thick rings
4
tablespoons
extra-virgin olive oil
kosher salt and pepper
3

  2. Meanwhile, brush the tomatoes and onion with 1 tablespoon of the oil and season with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  3. Grill vegetables until tender, 5 to 6 minutes per side for the onion and 2 to 3 minutes per side for the tomatoes. Transfer to a bowl as they are done.
  4. Add the spinach to the bowl and toss.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, mustard, remaining 3 tablespoons oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  6. Slice the sausages and serve with the vegetables and dressing.
