  • Pour water into a saucepan. Add white wine and salt, and bring to a simmer over medium heat.

  • Add leeks to the hot liquid and reduce heat to medium-low. Cover saucepan and simmer until leeks are fork-tender, about 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, pour capers into a mesh strainer and run under the faucet for about 5 minutes to wash off the brine.

  • Strain leeks and arrange on plates. Sprinkle with vinaigrette and capers. Serve hot.
