These are so delicious, I made pretty much as stated with only a few amount adjustments, I subbed green onions for the yellow, and omitted the dried cilantro, I mixed up the ingredients and chilled for 6 hours which made handling easier, we loved this recipe Fluffster thank you for sharing hon, next time I am going to double the recipe!...Kitten
