Mushroom Tuna Luncheon Salad

In order to make this 'salad' you need a can of mushrooms, boiled eggs, a can of tuna and mayonnaise. This concoction will also ask for seasoned salt and a small amount of sweetening. It is faster and easier than a tuna noodle casserole, it is more slimming since the noodles are omitted and it is cooler to prepare and eat in the summer than the casserole is. It also really tastes like a tuna noodle casserole when you have finished. Yumm.

Here is the finished product:                                                         Somewhat gone.

Assuming position as a lettuce wrap.
