How to store Balsamic Mayo Dip

Mayonnaise-based sauces can actually be stored in the fridge for quite some time! If you are using a commercial mayonnaise the shelf life is very long.

On its own, mayo lasts a long time so adding the extra acidity of the vinegar should do nothing but preserve it more! Feel free to store this dip in an airtight container as long as you want.

What makes balsamic vinegar different than other vinegars?

Have you ever wondered what gives balsamic vinegar its unique flavor? Here is how it is made:

Balsamic vinegar is made by pressing grapes, often Trebbiano, and reducing them into a thick syrup. This syrup is then fermented for 10+ years until it reaches the perfect flavor!

The grapes and the syrup is key to that unique balsamic taste!
