Special equipment: twelve 12- to 14-inch skewers, soaked in water for at least 10 minutes if they’re wood or bamboo

In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar and mustard. Set aside.

Cut each onion through the root into 12 wedges, so that each piece has a bit of root holding it together. Thread each skewer with 2 onion wedges, 2 pieces of sausage, 1 or 2 peppers, and 1 or 2 pieces of eggplant.

Prepare a grill to medium heat. Brush both sides of the skewers with the olive oil and sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Grill until the onions, peppers, and eggplant are tender and lightly charred and the sausage is heated through, 4 to 5 minutes per side.

Arrange the skewers on plates or a platter, drizzle with the balsamic vinegar mixture, and serve.
