Grape leaves other than for stuffing?

greygarious | Jul 23, 200909:55 AM     8

Before I retired, I used to pick Concord grapes from vines growing on my mail route (the new homeowners considered them a nuisance and eventually hacked them down). I'd put some out on the porch for the birds, who returned the favor - I now have some vines growing around the scrub shrubbery at the edge of the woods. I left them alone for a few years so they wouldn't be stressed, but could now use some of the leaves and fruit. I'll freeze some leaves to stuff in the future, but wonder if chiffonaded leaves would be suitable in tossed salads. Couldn't find any info on uses other than dolma. Has anyone had them other ways?
