    8- to 10-ounce red onions, cut into ⅓-inch-thick rounds

  • tablespoons red wine vinegar

  • 6

    cup mayonnaise

  • 8⅓-inch-thick slices seeded wheat bread or four ciabatta rolls, cut horizontally in half

1. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and sauté until soft and lightly browned, breaking up onion rings, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in vinegar and season to taste with salt and pepper. 2. Chop enough arugula to measure 1 cup; place in medium bowl. Mix in mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper.

Top with red onions, then whole arugula leaves and bread.
