- 700gm lean heart smart pork
- ½ cup lime juice
- 4 Tbs soy sauce
- 2 tsp fish sauce

Place all the salad items in a bowl and toss to combine. Divide the mixture amongst four large bento boxes.
Place the pork in a saucepan with two cups of water. Use a fork to break up the meat prior to turning on the heat. Heat the pork and allow the meat to poach until cooked stirring periodically.
Drain the pork and reserve for the top of the salad.
Mix together the dressing ingredients.
Share the pork and dressing amongst the four bento boxes.
