Stir in vinegar, brown sugar and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Pour onion mixture over potatoes and asparagus; stir until coated. Sprinkle with pepper.

Expert Tips

  • Balsamic vinegar is a great flavor booster, but if you don't have any on hand, you can use cider or red wine vinegar.
  • Green beans can be used instead of the asparagus.
