country salad bento

Hi bento pals! Quick post for today...lunch is a refreshing salad with spinach, romaine, fennel, tomato, red cabbage, scallion, tasty green olives. Lemon-extra virgin olive oil dressing.

Mini salmon cakes made with plenty of lemon, minced red onion, parsley and Greek yogurt plus a pita triangle toasted with olive oil and thyme round things out!
Happy Wednesday!

Ooo I like those mini salmon cakes, all tucked in my favorite bento box! Love the fresh greens and a touch of purple cabbage! I hope to be back bentoing soon, when things slow down and I pass my test I have been studying for! See ya soon!

Hi Lyndsey! Aren't salmon cakes fun and useful for bento? Love how you can customize their flavor :D
Good luck on your exam and I can't wait for you to be "back to bento"! Cheers! ^^

Hi Lily, awwww thanks for such sweet comments! There is such a nice flavor alchemy with salmon, lemon, yogurt--just natural "friends"!

Is winter relenting at all where you are? Had nice light for this photo with a bright sunny sky today, but it's still chilly here. C'mon spring!!
