"This was very good, however, it was way too salty for us. I don't think I'd add any of the salt at first next time, and would just salt to taste afterwards. I did have to substitute a mixture of cho..." See morepped spring onions and white onions for the leeks, since I didn't have any, and I only had dried tarragon on hand so I used 1 Tbsp plus 1 tsp. The flavor was good other than the salt issue. It's great to have a new use for all of the heads of lettuce we have been getting from our csa!"
