Use any unsulfured, dried fruit you have on hand in place of the cranberries.

In place of kale use arugula, mixed greens, or spinach.

Pop in some pumpkin seeds as a sub for the sunflower.

Use pecans, almonds, pistachios, or cashews in place of the walnuts.

Substitute lentils, black beans, chickpeas, or another loved legume for the edamame.

Use yellow, white, or green onion in place of red onion.

Substitute another herb such as dill, parsley, or basil in place of cilantro.
