    4 large Italian frying peppers, also called Cuban peppers

    3 tbsp. red wine vinegar
    1 tbsp. finely chopped fresh oregano
    1 tsp. minced garlic
    1 tsp. kosher salt
    1/4 tsp. black pepper, freshly ground


    To make the dressing: In a large bowl, whisk the dressing ingredients until blended.

    When the onions are cool enough to handle, cut each slice into quarters, separating the rings. Remove and discard the large pieces of blackened skin from the peppers. Cut the peppers into 2- to 3-inch pieces. Add the peppers and onion rings to the remaining dressing and toss to coat.
    Grill the sausages over Direct Medium heat until golden brown and fully cooked, 6 to 8 minutes, turning occasionally. Grill the rolls until lightly toasted, 30 to 60 seconds.
    Place a sausage on one side of each roll. Top with peppers and onions, distributing them equally. Drizzle any remaining dressing on the other side of each roll. Serve warm.
