Ingredients

  • 4 large red onions, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 8 garlic cloves, peeled and halved
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 cups cider vinegar
  • Grated zest of 2 oranges
  • 6 12-ounce packages cooked sausages (pork, chicken, turkey, lamb, and/or vegetarian)
  • Assorted mustards

Preparation

  1. Drop the onions into lightly salted boiling water for 1 minute; drain. Place the onions in a bowl with the pepper, cumin, garlic, salt, vinegar, and orange zest; add just enough water to cover. Refrigerate until the onions are bright pink, about 3 hours. Drain before serving.
  2. Note: The sausages can be grilled or broiled earlier on the day of the party. Slice them into bite-size pieces (which makes knives unnecessary) and reheat them in foil in the oven before serving with the onions and an assortment of gutsy, grainy mustards.
