Ingredients

  • 3 cups strawberries sliced
  • 4 cups arugula
  • 4 tablespoons balsamic reduction
  • 4 tablespoons goat cheese (or cream cheese)
  • 12 flatbread crackers broken in half

maple cinnamon pecans

  • 3/4 cup pecans
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions

  • Arrange strawberries, arugula and flatbread crackers in compartments in your lunch containers. Use small condiment containers for the goat cheese and balsamic reduction.
  • For maple cinnamon pecans: toast pecans in a frying pan for 5-7 minutes, until lightly toasted. Add the cinnamon and toss; then add the maple syrup and stir everything up to coat. Allow to cool before adding to the lunch boxes.
  • Store in the fridge for up to 4 days.

Notes

Make sure to use the freshest berries you can find; to help them last longer you may wish to do a vinegar wash:
  • soak in 1 part vinegar 5 parts water for 5 min
  • rinse thoroughly under water
  • allow to dry completely before slicing and portioning into bento boxes
