Awesome! Used fresh small leeks from my garden so was able to use more of the green part and a delicious olive oil from Italy. Wonderful flavours! Thanks for another keeper ForeverMama! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag..
- 115 grams leeks (8 medium leeks, trimmed of tough green parts)
- Kosher salt, to taste
- 5 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- Freshly ground white pepper, to taste
- 7 tablespoons oil (preferably a good quality olive oil)
- 8 sprigs parsley
- 1 large egg (hard-boiled, chopped)
What You Will Need
No special items needed.
Starting about 1" above root end, slice leeks lengthwise, but not all the way through. Open leeks like a book and wash well in cold running water to remove all sand and dirt. Bring a 12" deep-sided skillet of salted water to a boil, add leeks, and cook over medium heat until soft but not mushy, about 6 minutes.
Transfer leeks to a large bowl of ice water to stop them from cooking further. Carefully split leeks completely in half lengthwise, and transfer to a rack, cut side down, to drain thoroughly.
Whisk vinegar, mustard, and salt and pepper together in a small bowl. Gradually add oil, whisking constantly, until vinaigrette is smooth and creamy. Adjust seasonings and set aside.
Remove leaves from 4 of the parsley sprigs, chop leaves, and set aside.
Divide leek halves equally among 4 warm salad plates. Drizzle vinaigrette over leeks, and sprinkle with chopped parsley and egg. Garnish each plate with a sprig of parsley.
