This egg salad bento box is a hearty lunch and snack all in one. Spoon the egg salad into a lettuce “bowl” to keep it looking pretty and enjoy with cocktail bread and veggies. Toss banana and blueberries with yogurt to keep the bananas from turning brown. Save the chocolate chips and pistachios for an afternoon pick-me-up.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Mash eggs in a small bowl with a fork. Stir in celery, mayonnaise, mustard, scallion greens and pepper until combined. Line one container with lettuce leaves and fill with the egg salad.

  • Combine blueberries, banana and yogurt in another container. Arrange broccoli and tomatoes in a third container. Place bread in a fourth container. Nestle a dip-size container in with the bread; fill it with pistachios and chocolate chips.


Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate egg salad (Step 1) for up to 2 days.

Tip: To hard-boil eggs, place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and cook at the barest simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, pour out hot water and cover the eggs with cold water. Let stand until cool enough to handle before peeling.

I had a craving for egg salad and wanted a healthy recipe. This worked out great. The tip for boiling eggs is excellent -- for the first time in a while the egg white did not stick to the shell! I detest celery so I swapped it out for the same amount of finely chopped carrot. I also swapped regular yellow mustard for the Dijon -- it's got zero calories and half the salt. I also added a dash of cayenne before spooning this into a whole-wheat pita. It's a far more satisfying breakfast than eggs and toast. Read More
