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.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate egg salad (Step 1) for up to 2 days.
2   hard-boiled eggs (see Tip), peeled and chopped
2 tablespoons  finely diced celery
1 tablespoon  low-fat mayonnaise
2 teaspoons  Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon  minced scallion greens
Freshly ground pepper to taste
2 leaves  Boston or bibb lettuce
1/2 cup  blueberries
1/2 cup  banana slices
2 tablespoons  nonfat or low-fat vanilla yogurt
2/3 cup  broccoli florets, cooked or raw
6   cherry tomatoes
3 slices  cocktail-size pumpernickel bread
1 tablespoon  shelled unsalted pistachios
1 tablespoon  bittersweet chocolate chips

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.
