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.

  1. You need to teach me your ways of making egg salads look good- I tried shooting one yesterday and it looked like those old school pesto potatoes 😉

  2. I was so happy to read that you have trouble with the word Mediterranean – I can never get it right (I copied your title this time)!!!
    And, egg salad is one of my favorites so I know I will love this version!

  3. I haven’t had egg salad in ages and this just inspired a craving for it! There are some words that I always seem to spell wrong (mediterranean being one of them)- homogeneous, reminiscent… just some off the top of my head, haha! I realized today when writing about monounsaturated fats that I had been spelling it wrong all along by calling it monosaturated. Oops! When I was in Italy I had so much delicious food and I feel like that *has* to be one of the reasons why I wanted to learn Italian so bad afterwards. Happy Friday!

  4. I took French in high-school and Italian in college and I am one of those people who is HORRIBLE at languages. I just don’t have that special gift. I do have the gift of eating their foods and enjoying it all. Italian is by far my favorite language as is the food. Nom Nom!

  5. I took two years of Spanish in college. I hated it at the time, but part of me wishes I would have practiced it a little more! Or a cooler language. French sounds more elegant, don’t you think?

  6. Oh my gosh now I’m thinking of Italian food… I came back from Rome sliiiiightly bigger than when I left but wow was it worth it 😉
    I took French and then Spanish and German… Spanish is the only one I can still speak now although I have forgotten far too much since moving home from Argentina, not good! But I’ve started up classes again and am loving gradually remembering it again 🙂

  7. I have never actually tried egg salad!! Pretty sure I’m missing out, especially if you can make it with greek yogurt.

  8. well English is not my first language so its totally normal for me to NEVER spell mediterranean correctly.. 😛 i have been looking for some quick lunch box friendly salad ideas and this looks wonderful. on a side note, you may have forgotten to write down the steps for preparation unless im not understanding it.

  9. I love egg salad, but I rarely do anything with it but the basics. This looks super good though! Funny story about languages, as a teenager I sang classically and took voice lessons every week. My teacher had me singing songs in German, French, Italian, Spanish and Latin. You’d think I’d pick up on some of the language, but nope. I never had a clue what I was saying. I took Spanish in college, though, and was able to put it to great use during my spring break trip to Cabo!
