Greek Salad with Stuffed Grape Leaves

2 years ago

Hey Luuuxers,

I was recently in NY/NJ for my cousin`s wedding. I had flown in a few days early so I could help with the wedding preparations.

We had a really productive day, getting lots of stuff done 2 days before the wedding. However, we had such a long day, and it was getting late, when we realized we hadn`t had dinner, and we were all getting really hungry.

My cousin suggested this small, mom and pop Pizza place near his house that they frequent all the time. Since it was pretty late, I decided to skip the pizza and Pasta options since they would be too heavy. Instead, I opted for a large Greek Salad. It came loaded with fresh veggies, and a ton of feta. I ended up leaving some of the cheese behind since paired with the dressing, it was way too salty. But the unexpected but nice addition to this salad was the stuffed grape leaves along the side of the plate.

If you have never had stuffed grape leaves before, it`s a Mediterranean/Middle Eastern dish that was really popular in my house growing up. Some people call them dolma or dolmades, but I`ve always known it as sarma, with dolma being a similar dish of stuff vegetables like tomatoes, zuchinni or peppers.

Either way, it was a nice surprise to have along with my salad.
