Leeks Vinaigrette with Mimosa

Leeks Vinaigrette with Mimosa

My husband took one look at this dish of food and asked, “Is this a French Fridays dish?”.  Definitely not standard fare at our house.  So yes, it is a French Fridays with Dorie dish called Leeks Vinaigrette with Mimosa.

So what is it?  Leeks (the thinner the better) poached until very tender, and generously drizzled with a simple vinaigrette made from walnut oil.  Not only is “mimosa” a champagne cocktail often served for brunch, it is also a garnish of chopped or grated hard-boiled egg.

This was interesting, but we liked it!  The walnut oil vinaigrette was delicious with the soft leeks.  If you have a glut of leeks from your garden or are looking for something unique, give this one a try!

The recipe for Leeks Vinaigrette with Mimosa can be found in Dorie Greenspan’s book Around My French Table.
