  1. My mother always let the seeds stay wet and then the salt stuck well to them, but I love the idea of the olive oil flavor on the seeds so I will try your way as well.

  2. Wow! So simple yet so delicious - I never knew if was so easy or I would have done it before. Thanks for the information.
