TREASURE ISLAND SALAD

This is from my vintage recipe collection.

2 cans (6 1/2 or 7-oz each) tuna, drained and flaked
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons lemon juice
shredded lettuce
1 large tomato, sliced
4 hard cooked eggs, finely chopped

Combine the tuna, mayonnaise and lemon juice together and chill. Place shredded lettuce on 6 salad plates; top each with tomato slice and a sixth of the tuna salad mixture. Sprinkle chopped egg around the rim of lettuce. Top with Pirate's Dressing; recipe follows.

1/2 cup chopped celery
1/3 cup chopped green pepper
1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish

Combine all the ingredients together well and chill.
