    Balsamic Mayo: Reduce the balsamic vinegar in a saucepan on the stovetop over medium heat until the vinegar gets thick and syrupy, about 10 to 15 minutes. In a small bowl, stir together the reduced vinegar, mayonnaise, black pepper and a pinch of salt or more to taste. Serve balsamic mayo with the warm asparagus fries. Enjoy!
