Recipe Notes

Variations: If you don’t have cranberries, or just want a different flavor, try raisins or dried cherries. Try substituting other nuts or seeds for the sunflower seeds… pumpkin seeds are another of my personal favorites. If you don’t have green onions on hand, try red onion, or some sweet vidalia onions when they are in season. Make this even more of a meal by adding some canned tuna or shredded chicken.
