No bear paws on the table!
Makes one bento box
For the salmon salad: in a large bowl mix together the salmon, chopped carrots, cucumber, garlic, parsley, lemon juice, yogurt, salt and pepper.
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.
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.
To make asparagus arrows: trim the spears to fit the box and slice in half lengthwise. Slice a bell pepper to make the bow.
For a healthy dessert, slice half an apple, place in box and drizzle with honey.
