This was a nice light-tasting and healthy way to prepare leeks. I served them hot, but I bet they would make a nice cold dish as well. I'm not sure if cooking them in broth made much of a difference, so another time I might just cook them normally and then put the dressing overtop. Thank you, Dancer for a new and delicious way to make leeks!

Enjoyed this lovely dish hot from the stove to complement baked fish fillets and rice. I used one each red and orange pepper, and added them to the leeks shortly before they were finished simmering, which brought them to that nice semi crisp state. This is a tasty veggie dish, with a great vinaigrette to finish it off.
