You must be leek lover to be able to enjoy this salad. My kids did not really like it while I love it.

Do not discard milk from cooking leeks, reduce it boiling some more and use to make leek quiche.

Your thoughts…

  1. I adore baby leeks! Unfortunately, I don’t have any recipes though, just plain (big) leeky ones. :-)
