Leeks in their vinaigrette

I love leeks but I often cook them in the same way each fall: in a vichyssoise soup. This time, I turned to another classic: leeks with vinaigrette. It is quite simple to make:

1. Wash your leeks carefully!
2. Boil your leeks, choc them in cold water and reserve.
3. Make your favourite vinaigrette (here: Dijon mustard, olive oil, sherry vinegar, parsley, salt and pepper)
4. Pour the vinaigrette over the leeks and enjoy!

This recipe makes a perfect appetizer for a formal diner or a great in-front-of-TV-eat-alone meal when served with your favourite cheese and a glass of wine.
