Video: The Night Before Christmas Salad
How do you eat leeks? And just like onions, i.e. added to the first and second courses, they can be sprinkled with herring and potatoes, even boiled or fried, it, cut into rings, can be served as an independent side dish for meat and fish or as an addition to any vegetable side dish.
Leek is indispensable for decorating dishes before serving on the festive table. But it's best to use it fresh in a variety of salads. As an example, I would like to bring to your attention a salad that I make during the Christmas Fast. My family called it “Christmas Eve”.

The Night Before Christmas Salad
You will need:
small carrot 1 pc., Kohlrabi cabbage 1 pc., Broccoli cabbage 1 pc., White radish or daikon 1 pc., Sour apple 1 pc., 1/4 celery root, leek 1 pc., 1 handful of cranberries, half a lemon, 1 can of pitted black olives, 1 bunch of greens, 1 tbsp. a spoonful of peeled sunflower seeds, 2 tbsp. tablespoons of linseed oil.
Wash the carrots thoroughly with a brush, cut off the ends, peel the celery root, radish and kohlrabi, remove the middle from the apple. Grate all this on a coarse grater, and best of all on a grater that is used to make Korean-style carrots. Put the grated vegetables in a large bowl. Add seeds, olives and cranberries. Disassemble the broccoli into inflorescences and add to the salad. Rinse the leeks well (there may be earth in the leaf axils).
Cut off the sluggish leaves, cut the white stem into rings, disassemble the rings, chop the green leaves finely too. Do the same with greens. Pour everything into a bowl and mix well. Put in a salad bowl. Season with oil and lemon juice before serving.
PS For gourmets I will add that grape seed oil and a few drops of an aqueous solution of vitamin D make this salad especially useful.
