Potato – Leek Vinaigrette

Borrowed from the Sundays at Moosewood cookbook of regional cuisines, in Maggie Pitkin’s section about New England food

  • 4 leeks
  • 4 medium potatoes
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced or pressed
  • 1 ½ teaspoons chopped fresh dill
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Wash the leeks well.  Slice the bulb and the tender green parts into ½ inch pieces.  Drop the sliced leeks into boiling water, cook them for about 5 minutes, drain, and set aside to cool.
Cut the potatoes into 1-1/2 inch chunks.  Drop them into boiling, salted water, cook them until tender but firm, about 10 minutes.  Drain and set aside.
Slice the red pepper into 1 inch strips.
Whisk together the remaining ingredients.  Then combine the leeks, potatoes, and peppers in a serving bowl.  Pour on the vinaigrette and chill well before serving.
