Party trick with stuffed grape leaves

20 Nov

My dear friend Sabin taught me this trick years ago. It’s a clever way to keep costs down and gourmet points high.

This is what you’ll need:

  • 1 can (per 3-4 guests) of TJ’s Dolmas/Greek stuffed grape leaves
  • 1 lemon
  • Olive oil to drizzle
  • 1 pretty plate

Directions: Select your serving plate (very important step). Open the pop-up can of dolmas – no opener needed. Arrange the stuffed grape leaves on the plate artistically. Slice the lemon. Use one slice for the middle of the plate. Cut a wedge and squeeze the juice over the dolmas. Drizzle the olive oil over the dolmas sparingly.

Serve to your guests like you slaved all day.
