It's lightened-up with greek yogurt and packed full of flavor with olives, sun-dried tomatoes and cucumber. Perfect for lunch on the go!I cannot even begin to tell you the number of times I have misspelled “Mediterranean” in the process of creating this post. It’s not like I thought I was a spelling-bee champion or anything but man has spell-check caused a serious blow to my confidence.

I’m seriously starting to question if my first language is English.

Actually, fun fact! For a blip in my life I was kind of, sort of, maybe just a little bit bilingual. I was in French immersion school from kindergarten until grade 6, which meant all of my classes were in French instead of English.

This could have led to me being completely bilingual, but then in grade 7 I switched to an English school where I not only lost most of my French, but I also discovered that my English skills were not entirely on point.

Perfect for lunch on the go!If the complete misuse of certain words or excessive punctuation didn’t give it away, English was never my best class in school. Neither was calculus…or art…or band for that matter.

I was a history and foreign language nerd in high school. For a hot second I wanted to be a UN interpreter so I was taking French, Italian, German and European history all at once. I may as well just throw it out there that I also attended Model UN. 3 times.

I never said I was cool.

Change up your lunch routine with this healthy and nutritious Mediterranean Egg Salad recipe. It's lightened-up with greek yogurt and packed full of flavor with olives, sun-dried tomatoes and cucumber. Perfect for lunch on the go!I think the real reason why I loved these languages was because of the food. Of the places I’ve visited along the Mediterranean coast 99.9% of them have delicious food. The .01% goes to that terrible meal I had in Marbella, Spain.

I took Italian for the pizza, French for the CHEESE and moules et frites and German…I have no clue how that happened.

So even though I can barely speak French, don’t remember any Italian and my English is questionable at times, at least I can eat this Egg Salad and feel like I got my Mediterranean fix.

363 words later and I still spelled that word wrong. Darn.

    Not that fond of eggs although I would like to like egg salad.
    I am Canadian; my father was in the Canadian Air Force while I was growing up. I lived in France from 1 to 4 years old. Apparently I was learning French and German during that time. I took French most of my elementary and high school years but because we moved everything 3 years I repeated all but 5 years. Although my father was French, he refused to teach any of us 6 kids. I had 4 years of Latin in high school and took a 6 week evening course in conversational Italian.
    I cannot speak anything but English but I can understand and help people who are learning.
    All those languages helped me when I boarded a Panamanian woman who came to learn English as a second language. She had basically no English when she arrived. She won the award for most improved in her class.
