This recipe without any additions is good if served cold, which was not specified. To the mix, I added a small amount of garbanzo beans (1/8 cup), sliced piementos (one jar), sliced red onions (about 5 slices cut up), some oregano and minced garlic (I used garlic power) before adding the mushrooms. The whole mixture (after adding the beans and mustard and salt and pepper) should be put in a refrigerator for at least 2 hours so that it can be served cold.
