2 tablespoons white wine vinegar, or mixture of half sherry vinegar and half white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon Dusseldorf mustard
5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon or dill
1 package (8 ounces) cooked beets, diced
1. Cut leeks into 3 to 4 pieces. Cook them in a steamer over simmering water until just tender, 7-10 minutes.
2. Combine the vinegar with the mustard in a small bowl. Slowly whisk in the olive oil; season with salt and pepper to taste.
3. Arrange leeks on individual plates or on one serving platter. Drizzle with vinaigrette, sprinkle with chives and tarragon. Chill until ready to serve; sprinkle with beets (their color will run if added too early).
