I didn't have any green onions, but liked this anyway! Great fresh taste, you don't taste the mint right away, it kind of creeps up on you, and gives a great after-taste. Will make many more times, with the onions added.

Mint flavor is very strong - if you're unsure about whether or not you're a mint fan, I would substitute something else. Dish looked pretty, but didn't receive great reviews from my roommate, my boyfriend, or myself. If you love mint, you should really like this. I made it because it had such a high rating and was disappointed.

Delicious!!! Made as directed with extra fresh garlic and julienned baby carrots for fresh and springy!

Wow, these were so fast and easy, not to mention delicious! I used frozen peas, just threw them in the pan with the other stuff and stir-fried them for a few minutes. Great side dish.

Very good and easy. It's great to have a vegetable that can be used on a buffet that doesn't have to be hot.

Great recipe!!!! Cannot wait to make it again. Quick to prepare but looks like you went to a lot of trouble to make. Loved the fresh mint, very tasty and just different enough for that "wow" factor. Served with grilled filet mignon for my husband's birthday dinner but think this would be great for a springtime meal with lamb chops or pork tenderloin.

Excellent flavors and very easy to make. I used a combination of peppermint and spearmint and the taste was so refreshing. I did add more salt to the dish.

Terrific, just terrific! I used a pinch of dried thyme with the salt & pepper since I didn't have fresh mint yet. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. Fast and fun and very good.
