February, Vegetable Of The Month! Recipe Of The Week – Leek Vinaigrette Salad


Leeks are available in large amount throughout February – at their tastiest and cheapest, you’d be daft not to incorporate leeks into a number of your dishes this month. Here is this week’s recipe of the week to get you started!

Leek vinaigrette salad is an easy dish to prepare for a take-to-work lunch and it takes just a few minutes to organize. The trick is to combine all the ingredients at lunchtime to avoid the extra salad leaves becoming soggy.


Quantities to be decided by you – depending on how many you are feeding.



  • leeks
  • hard boiled egg(s) or ham
  • mixed salad leaves
  • vinaigrette



1. The night before, blanch some extra leeks, pat dry and mix into vinaigrette

2. The next day, pack a spare hard-boiled egg (excess breakfast), or some ham, and a bag of mixed salad leaves

3. Combine at lunchtime
