Totally Terrific Toppers on Cucumber "Chips"

Makes 1 serving(s)

WHAT'S IN IT?

1 (4.75 or 5 ounce) can light tuna or chicken breast in water, drained
3 tablespoons light mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 small cucumber, unpeeled
8 raisins (if you like)

STUFF YOU NEED

Can opener
Fork
Small bowl
Measuring spoons
Cutting board
Cutting knife
Small, sealed container
Plastic bags
Spoon

HOW TO PUT IT TOGETHER

  1. Open the can of tuna or chicken with a can opener.
  2. Scoop out the tuna or chicken with a fork into a small bowl.
  3. Plunk the measured mayonnaise and onion powder on top of the tuna or chicken. Jumble it all together with the fork.
  4. Lay the cucumber down on a cutting board. With the cutting knife, slice 8 circles, about 1/4-inch thick, from the cucumber.
  5. Pack the tuna or chicken salad in a small, sealed container, the sliced cucumber circles ("cucumber chips") in a plastic bag and the raisins in another plastic bag.
  6. When you're ready to eat, spoon one tablespoon of the salad on top of each cucumber chip. To make extra terrific, plop a raisin on top of each Topper!
