Brown Rice Grape Leaf Salad

If you love stuffed grape leaves, this recipe is for you. This Mediterranean salad features the best flavors and textures of a dolma - a Mediterranean stuffed grape leaf mezze. The key ingredient is obviously the grape leaves.

If you wonder where you can find grape leaves, stop by a Middle Eastern market or buy them online. We use California brined grape leaves because we love all the good local things.🍇🌿
