....the ones I had yesterday from Los Olivos (CA) Grocery. They were silky and more fully-flavored than any I've had or made.

I tried to see what was in them: long grain rice, tons of pine nuts, and something that appeared to be currants....they had a slightly sweet flavor (the currants?) and no acidic edge at all. The pinenuts had been pre toasted and that added immensely to the great flavor.
I saw this recipe and it sounds close. I also like that it makes a smaller amount of dolmas or dolmades.

(Does anyone know if these can be frozen?

)

Now I'm going to have to make excuses to go back to Los Olivos just for the dolmades (and all the other goodies they had--what a great deli!!)

    sounds like a turkish-style recipe, judging by the currants. i'd also add some chopped fresh dill.
