Icy, they are all gone We enjoyed them and I'd make them again.

Sounds good Kadesma, but I was a little weary about the green onions in this. Did it go together ok? Onions and fruit seems odd to me, but maybe it's good?

Hi Amber, yes it tasted good to me, but, I'd wager you could leave out the onion or use even less if you'd like. That's what so much fun for me about cooking I did like it this way and use fruit in several things I make that has garlic and onion..
