Leek Salad

Leek salad

Mamta Gupta

You can use standard leeks for this salad, but it tastes better with baby leeks. Serves 2-4


  • 10 baby leeks or 2 large leaks, thickly sliced

  • Dressing:

  • 1 tbs. olive oil

  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed

  • 2 tsp. whole grain mustard

  • 2 tbs. lime or lemon juice

  • 1 tbs. wine or any other nice vinegar

  • 2 tbs. olive oil

  • Salt and pepper

  • A pinch of sugar


  1. Cook leeks in a pan of boiling water, until tender. Do not over cook. Allow to cool a little. Place in a serving dish.

  2. Place all dressing ingredients in a small jar and shake vigorously to mix.

  3. Pour over warm leeks, cover with cling film and allow to chill for a few hours. This helps to absorb flavours.

  4. You can add chopped fresh herbs of choice to the dressing, like parsley or coriander.

  5. An alternative dressing would be a 50/50 mix of Mayonnaise and sour cream, with salt pepper and herbs like parsley.
