Leeks salad, a very simple and super easy recipe to help you eat more leeks! But why should you eat more leeks? Leeks are part of the top 10 prebiotic foods.

Never heard of prebiotics before? Prebiotics feed your probiotics. The two work together to create balance in your gut and enhance your digestion.

Basically, prebiotic foods feed your good gut bacteria. Fortunately, it’s easy to add them to your daily diet, for example with this delicious leeks salad recipe.

Once again, this recipe is a real French classic and is called “poireaux vinaigrette”. It is part of the “bistro cuisine”.

If you are looking for more recipes using leeks you can check my pot au feu (French beef stew) recipe that comes with its own delicious bone broth (another thing to help healing your gut).

Prep time


Cooking time





  • Prepare your leek by removing any roots. You want to use only the more tender light green and white parts (The dark green tops that are tough can be used to flavor stocks). Cut the leek in half and slice it lengthwise (as below).

    Wash thoroughly the cut leek, being sure to remove any soil between leaves.

  • Place in your steamer.
    Cook for about 10 minutes or until tender (time will vary according to thickness).
  • Once the leek is cooked, transfer it to a large bowl and let it cool down until it reaches room temperature. Then add the olive oil, apple cider vinegar and salt. Mix well. And voilà! Serve cold.
    Bon appétit!


  • You can make this ahead of time and keep it in the fridge.

  1. I never would have thought of serving cooked leeks cold as a salad! It’s funny how something that is common or traditional in one country can seem so unusual from another, and I’m only across the channel from you! I will definitely have to try this sometime, although I might wait til the weather warms up, it definitely seems more like a warm leek time of year at the moment!
