Chicken Salad Cucumber Cup Bento

For tomorrow’s bento, I took an idea I saw in an appetizer cookbook and made it my own.  These cucumber cups were really easy to make. I just sliced them thick enough to fit nicely heighth-wise into my bento, scooped them out with a melon baller, and filled them with a bit of chicken salad topped with parmesan cheese.  Scooping the cups out was MUCH easier than I thought it would be – these would be really easy to make for a party.  The chicken salad is nothing fancy, just chopped cooked chicken mixed with green onion and a tiny bit of Miracle Whip.  I created a pretty flower out of the cucumber I had removed from the cups, some tomato slices, and one asparagus tip.  In the other half of the box, I put some leftover cornbread, asparagus, and some Little Hearts cookies.

on the menu:

  • 2 cucumber cups filled with chicken salad
  • cucumber and tomato salad
  • cornbread
  • asparagus
  • Little Hearts cookies
  • spinach leaves as box liner
