smoked salmon hearts and avocado bento

As late winter merges into what feels like an early spring here in Sonoma County, a bento to celebrate our Meyer lemon tree heavy with dark yellow and tender skinned fruit. I used Meyer lemon zest to add tangy zip to the cream cheese layer of these heart shaped tea sandwiches and decorated them with small bright wedges of lemon. Local smoked salmon really sparkled with the lemon contrast! Butter lettuce lightly dressed with olive oil and yes, Meyer lemon juice, accented with buttery avocado round out this light bento lunch.
