    You do have to rinse the brine off the grape leaves. It comes with the directions. These are lovely, who would have ever thought of gorgonzola and grape leaves? What a great thing for a cocktail buffet! I finally threw up my hands and said "There are no more!".  -  01 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Overall, I thought this was a great recipe. I would make one change. It was a bit salty for my taste. I would suggest rinsing the grape leaves to remove the brine. I also served it warm with some tomato sauce. It was very good this way as well.  -  01 Jun 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
