Stuffed Grape Leaves with Rice & Grated Vegetables (Dolmathakia Yialantzi)

In a Mexican restaurant, my husband, Gregg, will determine whether he’ll be back or not based on the taste and quality of their tamales. I do the same thing with Greek and Mediterranean restaurants and grape leaves. Grape leaves are an absolute favorite dish of mine. You can easily refrigerate any extra stuffing and use it as a side dish for another meal. The lack of meat, dairy, and eggs makes this the perfect dish for Lent or Daniel Fast. And, notice how I’ve given you yet another wonderful dish with which to use up those zucchini come August?

Mediterranean Grilled Chicken on the George Forman

This recipe is fantastic for grilled chicken, whether it’s outside on a charcoal grill, inside on my cast iron grill pan, or on the George Forman. I served it with grape leaves, hummus, Greek salad, and an olive tray.

The pictures in this recipe were taken during a romantic weekend getaway shared by Gregg and me. We had a hotel suite with somewhat of a kitchen, and were able to enjoy all of our meals together, in the privacy of our room.
