Stuffed Grape Leaves (Dolmas)

Tapas, meze, and antipasti are all terms for small dishes, similar to what you think of as appetizers, served in the Mediterranean. Dating back to Roman times, appetizers are traditionally used to whet your appetite or stimulate the gastric juices before a meal. In the Mediterranean, appetizers are seasonal depending on what types of foods are on hand.

For example, you see more dolmas (stuffed grape leaves) in the summer months while the grape vines are in bloom.
