Makes one bento box

How to make it

  1. For the salmon salad: in a large bowl mix together the salmon, chopped carrots, cucumber, garlic, parsley, lemon juice, yogurt, salt and pepper.

  2. Now make your salmon salad look like a bear! Use an ice cream scoop and add a scoop of the salmon salad to your bento box.  Tuck the whole-wheat crackers into the scoop to form ears.  Place a cucumber round on top of the salmon salad to form a nose and mouth. Use carrot rounds for eyes, nori to make a mouth and a raisin for the nose.

  3. For the carrot ribbon salad: make carrot ribbons using a veggie peeler and place them in a bowl of ice water for a few minutes to curl.  Drain water and toss ribbons with sesame oil and raisins.

  4. To make asparagus arrows: trim the spears to fit the box and slice in half lengthwise.  Slice a bell pepper to make the bow.

  5. For a healthy dessert, slice half an apple, place in box and drizzle with honey.
