    • 2 cups chopped plum tomatoes (about 14 ounces)
    • 3/4 cup chopped fresh dill
    • 3/4 cup chopped fresh mint
    • 1/2 cup olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon plus 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
    • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 55 (or more) brined grape leaves from two 7-to 8-ounce jars, drained, stems cut off if needed
    • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • Fresh dill sprigs (for garnish)
    • Fresh mint sprigs (for garnish)
    • Ingredient info: Bulgur is available at some supermarkets and at natural foods stores. Brined grape leaves are sold at some supermarkets, and at specialty foods stores and Greek markets.
    • Test-kitchen tip: Weighing the grape leaves down prevents them from opening up while they simmer.
