I made this recipe when company showed up at the last minute and I needed to scrape something together. Luckily I had everything on hand except the sunflower seeds, so I substituted with pine nuts. It was a HUGE hit. The seasoning mix was perfect--just enough brininess to offset the sweetness from the sugar. The textures from the grated carrots, celery, nuts, and noodles were great, as well. The nuts and celery were crunchy while the liquid gave the noodles and carrots just enough softness to provide some contrast. We served it with grilled salmon (marinated in a sweet Asian marinade) and the flavors complimented each other well. I will definitely make this dish again and recommend it as an easy veggie side that is different from the norm. Give it a shot, you won't be disappointed!
