Fresh Asparagus Salad with Crumbled Danish Blue Cheese

This delicious Salad calls for your favourite balsamic reduction. We carry many brands of Balsamic Vinegar in store and encourage you to always have some on hand. To make a balsamic reduction (or glaze), simply put a cup of your favourite balsamic in a pot, bring to a gentle boi, then reduce to a simmer for 5-10 minutes. You can reduce it to your desirable thickness. It will continue to thicken as it cools, so pull it off the heat a little sooner than your desired thickness.
