Fennel loves fat. That's why fennel seeds are such a common seasoning in sausages. They contribute a mildly peppery, fresh flavor that cuts through the delicious heaviness of the rich meat.

So we decided to play up that balance by creating a grilled sausage sandwich with a triple dose of fennel -- fennel seeds in the sausage, fresh fennel bulb shaved and piled on top, and more fennel seeds in the dressing.

We blend the fresh fennel with shaved red bell pepper and a Dijon-mayonnaise dressing to create a cooling slaw that adds a crunchy sweet contrast to the warm sausage.

Want to dress up these rolls even more? Slice sweet onions into thick slabs, coat them with oil and slap those on the grill, too. The grilled onions will provide a delicious bed to nestle the sausages into inside the rolls.
