Leek Salad – Recipe

This colorful and unusual salad makes use of leeks, such a great choice for the winter table with their high iron content, while tart lemon and sweet red bell peppers add vitamin C. Quick to prepare and filled with flavor.

INGREDIENTS

2 large leeks, trimmed and washed well
1 small red bell pepper
3 tablespoons chopped walnuts
Grated rind and juice of 1 lemon

Salt and pepper to taste

1. Finely shred leeks, then blanch in boiling water 2 minutes, drain, and cool.

2. Slice red pepper. Combine with leeks and walnuts in a salad bowl.

3. Mix lemon rind and juice with mayonnaise and toss the salad. Adjust seasonings to taste and serve.

Serves 4 to 6.
