I have had a hankering for a caprese salad ever since I bought some mozzarella and tomatoes last week, all I needed was the basil. So I snapped some up at the supermarket this evening and here we go. Can't wait to eat it (I'm nearly drooling just looking at the photo).

  1. Slice tomatoes and mozzarella and pick some nice looking basil leaves.
  2. Arrange the tomato slices, cheese and basil in a repeated pattern in bento box.
  3. Peel and chop pineapple.
  4. Whisk yoghurt with vanilla, cinnamon and honey.
  5. Place pineapple and yoghurt sauce in bento box.
Making the salad was not difficult, but it took me to a bit to sit in the bento box evenly (15 minutes).
Arranging the fruit and sauce was a max at 5 minutes.
