3 large red, yellow or white onions (9 to 11 ounces each), peeled and trimmed
6 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs such as rosemary, sage, thyme or tarragon
1 tablespoon dried Italian seasoning
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
Heat charcoal or gas grill to medium. Cut each onion in half horizontally. With a sharp pointed knife cut a hole about 1-inch wide and 1/2-inch deep in top of each onion. Place each onion on a piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil, about 12x14-inches. Combine remaining ingredients and drizzle over onions. Fold edges of foil together to seal tightly. Place packets on grill.
Heat covered on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill over medium coals until tender, 25 to 35 minutes. Remove packets from grill. Fold foil back carefully before serving.
Makes 6 servings.
