Easter Salad

Cute salad cup for bento! Great for Easter season.

I got a juicer as an anniversary gift from a friend and have been making carrot & apple juice every morning ever since!  I get a lot of juice pulp so am trying to make a good use of them.
I made dressing with it this time!

Carrot Dressing

1 handful of carrot or carrot & apple juice pulp
1/4 Onion
1tbs White sesame
60ml Soy sayce
1tbs Sugar
60ml Vinegar (Balsamic or White wine vinegar preferred)
120ml   Oil
100ml Water (or Soy milk)
pinch, Salt

1. Slice onion and soak in water for about 1 hour.
2. Mix all the ingredients in FP.
3. Let sit in a fridge over night.

To make a rabbit, cut a slice of bread as shown. ( I used wholefoods brand snappy sourdough. This bread is easier to shape than other kinds I think)
2. Roll over plastic wrap with a rolling pin.

3. Place ham, cheese, or anything you like in the middle of the bread. 
4. Wrap it as shown.
5. Put salad in a cup. Place the bread in the middle. Make ears with extra bread and ham.
Make face parts with nori seaweed.


Tofu Matcha Cream

Tofu sweets is very popular in Japan, such as tofu cheese cake, tofu pudding and tofu cream.
