Summertime Tomato and Leek Salad

  • FAST

This is a sharp dish, with several different levels of acidity and pungency. But if you begin with good tomatoes, it's also sweet.

  1. 8 thin leeks (about 2 pounds), white and tender green, split almost in half lengthwise and rinsed thoroughly
  2. 3 small tomatoes, cored and cut into wedges
  3. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  4. 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  5. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  6. Flat-leaf parsley sprigs or minced chives, for garnish
  1. In a large skillet, cook the leeks in boiling salted water until tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain the leeks in a colander, refresh them under cold running water and drain on paper towels.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the tomatoes with the oil and vinegar and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper and let stand for 10 minutes. Transfer the leeks to a platter and spoon the tomatoes and vinaigrette over the leeks. Serve garnished with parsley sprigs.
