Thermomix Ice Plant Salad with Balsamic Reduction

Thermomix Ice Plant Salad with Balsamic Reduction

This is absolutely a salad to make when entertaining - so flavoursome, fresh and impressive, yet actually really easy to do! By doing the balsamic reduction in the Thermomix or thermo cooker, we can keep the temperature perfectly stable meaning no burning or boiling over. Perfection every time!

Ice plant edible leaves have a clean fresh flavour, the leaves are thick with a juicy crispness. This unique succulent groundcover is a costal variety, the leaves of which are covered in glistening cells which give the appearance that the leaf is covered in ice, hence the common name ‘Ice Plant’. Available from specialty grocers, or simply replace with baby spinach leaves.
