Warm potato & leek vinaigrette

Method

  • Blanch the leeks and chats in lightly salted boiling water until tender. Drain very well and then cook on a preheated lightly oiled ridged grill or BBQ.
  • At the same time, cook the eggs in boiling water for 6 mins. When cool enough to handle, shell and cut in half. 
  • To make the vinaigrette, combine the garlic with a decent amount of seasonings, the vinegar, oil and mustard. 
  • To serve, arrange the potatoes and leeks in individual dishes. Then top with the egg, prosciutto and a generous amount of the dressing and chives.
  • nb. This salad is best served warm.
