Modern Recipe



  1. wash the ingredients
  2. tear them into small pieces with your hands (easier to chop the root vegetables, but make sure the pieces are well broken apart)
  3. rub them with oil, then sprinkle with vinegar and salt just prior to serveing
  4. serve fresh


  • The leek is quite mild raw, (milder than the spring onion) but onion quite strong, so favour leek over onions in quantity.
  • this is a very piquant recipe, the taste of the usually strong herbs is gentle compared to the onion, so do not worry about adding herbs like rosemary to this salad.
  • use young borage leaves, they have less prickles. Their taste is quite mild, so use more for a fresher salad.
