Greek Dolmades (Stuffed Grape Leaves)

Homemade dolmades are on another level compared to the canned version. The smell is vibrant and fresh the flavors are balanced with the brine lemon juice that gives a subtle kick and goes in balance with the abundance of fresh herbs in the rice. This is an amazing dish. Give it a try.
