Salmon + Avocado Bento

salmon and avocado salad

We had a little bit of leftover salmon from dinner the other night, and I had a super foods brainwave. My daughter loves bringing avocado and salmon sushi for lunch, but I wanted to try something a little easier. This avocado salad is meant to be eaten straight from the avocado shell.

For this bento, you’ll need half of an avocado and a very small piece of cooked salmon. With a fork, flake the salmon and stir in a teaspoon or two of mayonnaise or Greek yogurt, a splash of soy sauce, some lemon juice, or whatever other seasonings you like.

Remove the pit from the avocado half, brush the avocado half with lime or lemon juice to help keep it from browning, and mound the salmon salad into the avocado. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. I wrapped this tightly in a little bit of saran wrap to help keep the avocado from browning.

Greek yogurt dip

Round out this bento with some cut up fruit, vegetables (with cute animal bento picks), Single Serving Greek yogurt dip, and bread or crackers with cheese. Don’t forget a spoon!

Salmon + Avocado Bento

These salmon salad cups are fun, bright, and delicious.

Ingredients:

Half of an avocado

A small chunk of leftover cooked salmon

A teaspoon or two of mayonnaise or Greek yogurt

Splash of soy sauce or sea salt

Some lemon or lime juice

Dill or other desired seasonings

Directions:

  1. With a fork, flake the salmon and stir in a teaspoon or two of mayonnaise or Greek yogurt, a splash of soy sauce, some lemon juice, or whatever other seasonings you like.
  2. Remove the pit from the avocado half, brush the avocado half with lime or lemon juice to help keep it from browning.*
  3. Mound the salmon salad into the avocado.
  4. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. I wrapped this tightly in a little bit of saran wrap to help keep the avocado from browning. Don't forget to pack a spoon for eating.

*Some people claim that this helps, others say it does nothing. I think it does help prevent browning, but you can certainly omit this step.
