  • Didn't know what to do with 1 cup of lemon juice so added it to pot after cooking 45 min in water. I grow my own grape leaves. - 4/28/11

  • I made this with brown rice and ground bison (buffalo), which is leaner than ground beef. The recipe didn't say how much meat/rice mixture to put in each grape leaf, so I ran out of it before I had used all the leaves. Next time I'll either use more meat or put only .5 Tbsp. of meat mixture/leaf. - 5/10/09

    How about a substitution of Salmon for the chicken and add some pine nuts. - 3/19/09

    Dolmades are my favorite! I'll leave out the beef, because I'm a vegetarian, but otherwise I'll be keeping this recipe as-is! Thank you! - 3/18/09
