Thinly slice the cucumber into rounds. Thinly slice just 4 garlic cloves. Add sliced cucumber, sliced garlic, white vinegar, dill, sugar, and a pinch of salt to a large bowl, and toss the dilly cucumber salad to combine. TIP: Continue to toss the cucumbers occasionally to ensure they are evenly coated.
Set the oven to broil. Peel and quarter the shallots. Add quartered shallots, 2 tsp olive oil, and a pinch of salt to a baking sheet, and toss. Broil until softened and well-browned in places, 7 to 10 minutes. Let broiled shallots cool for 5 minutes, transfer to a cutting board, and roughly chop into bite-size pieces. Thinly slice the Thai chile. In a medium bowl, combine the chopped shallots, balsamic glaze, agave, and as much sliced chile as you’d like. Toss the shallot relish and season with salt. TIP: All broilers are different. Watch carefully to ensure the veggies don’t burn.
Peel and mince the remaining garlic clove and add to a small bowl. Add Vegenaise and a pinch of salt. Stir the garlic aioli to combine.
Remove sausages from the plastic casing and slice on the bias. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add sliced sausage and cook until browned on both sides, 4 to 6 minutes. Slice ciabatta rolls in half and drizzle cut side of halved rolls with 1 tsp olive oil. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and broil in the oven, directly on the rack, until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes.
Spread the bottom halves of the toasted ciabatta rolls with garlic aioli. Top with cooked sausage, shallot relish, and baby arugula. Serve Italian sausage sandwiches with dilly cucumber salad. Enjoy!
