  1. Light a grill. Brush the onion slices on both sides with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil.

  2. In a small nonreactive saucepan, simmer the vinegar and brown sugar over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved, about 3 minutes. Pour the mixture over the onions and stir in the cayenne. Season with salt and black pepper. Serve the onion relish warm or at room temperature.
