Top Rated Sunflower Seed Recipes

trail mix
I try to stay away from premade packaged trail mixes because they are often loaded with added sugar, salt, and sometimes even artificial colors and flavors. However, I am always making my own clean nut mix for an easy grab-and-go snack! Mix your favorite raw nuts and seeds with a few dried berries and throw them in a small Ziploc bag. This is a great energy-boosting snack when you need that extra push come 2 p.m.! Just be mindful of the portion size. Although nuts and seeds are super nutritious, they have a high calorie content, so it’s easy to overdo it. Fill each baggie with a handful of the nut mix, store them in the fridge (yes the fridge!) to keep them fresh, and stick to only one baggie per day.This recipe is provided by Jennifer Leah Gottlieb.

Sunflower seed brittle does that sweet, salty, crunchy mash-up so well, and it reinforces the nutty/grassy/floral flavor redolent in Alpine cheese like Rolf Beeler Guyére. Sunflower seeds harness the allusion to the sun, which fuels the grass, which makes the milk, which forms the cheese. Reprinted from ©The Art of The Cheese Plate by Tia Keenan, Rizzoli, 2016.

Watermelon and Arugula Salad
This refreshing salad makes a delicious first course or side dish for warm-weather meals. You can make it up to a day ahead, but add the arugula just before serving for best texture. If you'd like to save time by buying pre-cut watermelon, you'll need about 2 pounds of chunks to equal 6 cups diced. Click here to see In Season: Watermelon Galore!
