Disappointed. Ruby Tuesdays recipe calls for cheese in their wontons.
While this recipe sounds interesting enough, it doesn't really resemble the dish they serve at Ruby Tuesday's. Their wonton appetizers are served hot and with a crunchy, spice coated exterior. This is more of a wonton wrapper fashioned into a "cup" with chilled filling. I'll keep looking.
