Very good! One variation that I like to make is I whip a package of Neufch?tel cheese with fresh chives or onions, or other herbs. Then I mix the sunflower seeds into the whipped cheese right before serving.

The cream cheese mixture was something different for me, and it was very good. I liked the combination of veggies given in the recipe, very colorful.
