For mldg2319, in case you haven't found an answer yet, try typing egg salad bento box into the Advanced Search in Recipes. EW did a whole article on bento box lunches a few years ago.

Looks like a great meal! I will try this but can anyone tell me what is in the other three sections of this lunch box?! It looks like a perfect light lunch.... Egg salad on lettuce, One piece whole wheat bread, pistachios and chocolate chips, and steamed broccoli and red peppers?????

Too Much Dijon I think it calls for too much Dijon mustard. You could cut it in half and be fine. I actually couldn't finish it based on the recipe. I think revising it slightly would make it a solid recipe. Cons: Too much Dijon, too mushy
