Napa Salad

This is a great salad recipe that is great for large gatherings, dish to pass and bbqs. This is so flavorful whether you use the napa or the green leaf cabbage.
In Florida I have found it difficult to find a good head if any at all of red leaf lettuce so I will substitute with 2 heads of Romaine Lettuce if I have no other options.
The noodles and the sunflower seeds add a different twist to this wonderful salad.
