|3||Young leeks; up to 5|
|1 teaspoon||Salt; (depends on the quantity of water)|
Use only young leeks. After thorough cleaning (of course), cut them in 5-7 cm pieces, (about 2 inches). Use the white part, possibly also the beginning of the green. Cook them in salted boiling water until they are tender but still whole. (Check with a knife).
Take them out of the water and arrange them nicely on a platter. Mix some lemon juice and a little salad oil and pour on the vegetable. Let cool a few hours in the fridge.
Before serving, grate a hard boiled egg and sprinkle it on the leek. Looks a bit exotic and it is very refreshing.
