Dolma are stuffed grape leaves filled with rice and seasonings that you can buy at Mediterranean specialty markets in the deli section. They're so hearty and tasty, they can turn a light Greek salad into a substantial meal.
2 1⁄2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano or thyme leaves
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 1⁄2 pounds cherry tomatoes, halved
1 large cucumber, peeled, seeded, and coarsely chopped
4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
16 pitted Kalamata olives
8 ounces stuffed grape leaves, halved crosswise
In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, lemon juice, oregano, and salt and pepper to taste.
In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients except the stuffed grape leaves. Pour the vinaigrette over the salad, turning gently to coat. Arrange salad on serving plates and top evenly with stuffed grape leaves.
