*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 recepie, the taste of the usually strong herbs is gentle compared to the onion, so do not worry abbout 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.
