Asparagus with Balsamic Mayonnaise 

 

            I like to serve this one at brunch in the spring when the asparagus is just in and the stalks are as thin as a pencil. I also find that making the dressing using a stab blender works best. While you can use a whisk using the stab blender does it all in one operation.

 

                                                            Serves 6 - 8
