Strawberry Lettuce with Watermelon Salad

Sunflower seeds are American original. Seeds are tasty and very nutritious. Add seeds to your salad or other favorite food. Seeds were used by the American Indians for high energy food, which was much needed. Spanish explorers brought the seeds to Europe. The seeds were returned to America with Russian and German immigrants. 

In North Dakota and Minnesota, sunflower became a important crop, in 1950.

Seeds and kernels:
In the shell... means the seed is left in tact with the meat still in the shell. Normally roasted and season. 

Kernels... processor have mechanically removed the hull. This form is more convenient. Roasted for snacking or to add to your favorite food.
