Leek Salad Faq’s

Can you eat leeks raw in a salad? Yes, you can eat raw leek. Usually, raw leeks taste similar to onion with a strong flavor, but for this recipe once you boil the veggie it will become softer with milder taste. Leeks are perfect for soups, salads or garnish on sandwiches. They taste delicious with different meats including chicken, beef, pork etc.

How do I prepare leeks? Cut the root and a little top part when you notice dry tops. Cut leek lengthwise, then slice each part.

Why are leeks dirty? They grow in soil, that’s why the dirt gets to them easily. To wash them perfectly, you can slice them first, immerse in water for few minutes and drain. Run with cold water again on colander to make sure you removed all the dirt.
