spring salad with avocado

Celebrate the turning of the season with this bright, fresh lunchbox! This is a great lunchbox because it’s so simple.. avocado is great! Fresh peas from the garden are great! Baby corn? Also great! Just grab everything you can and throw it in, it’s all good. Bonus points if your garden is overflowing with edible flowers – I really can’t keep up, though i’m trying! Just remember, with all these vegetables you’re going to need a bit of body. I went with wheat puffs and bliss / protein balls to help keep those energy levels up all day long. By the way, if you’re loving them, you can click here to check out another lunch that I did that featured them and a whooole lot of delicious roast vegetables!

Let me also take a minute to say, how adorable are those little baby corn pieces! Just slice it thinly and you have these happy, cute little suns / sunflowers / starbursts. Have to remember that little trick next time I do a bento box! Actually I must do another bento sometime! If you have anything you’d like to see, leave a comment. If it’s even remotely plausible I might just have a go! I do like a challenge, after all. Bon appétit everyone!
