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.
