Light, refreshing and nutritious too! Great for a light summertime lunch or as a lovely side dish too. Cook time is time required to stand before serving.

I made this up the night before I took it into the office. You would think I work with a bunch of vultures the way everyone dug into this. I used fresh mushrooms and made my own mayonnaise with a touch of balsamic vinegar. I've got a potluck party coming up next week, I think I'll make a bathtub's worth, based on it's success at the office. Cindy Lynn, my entire office loves you!
I made this for a fellowship dinner at church and it was devoured! I used fresh mushrooms and red onions. I left out the hard boiled eggs because we had deviled eggs. I did sprinkle just a little sugar over the top of the mayonaise. Thanks Cindy for a delicious lunch dish!!!
