Molded Tuna Ring

File this one under "Names that make you go Huh?"... the more I read, the more this recipe sounds disgusting... creative, but disgusting. It's basically a tuna fish Jello mold. So 1960s!

Molded Tuna Ring

2 cans tuna
2 hard boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup chopped stuffed olives
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 TB unflavored gelatin
1/4 cold water
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream "(optional) I didn't."
1 TB minced onion
1/2 ts salt
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 TB finely minced parsley

-Drain tuna and flake it. Combine with eggs, olives and celery.
-Soften gelatin in cold water for 5 min, then heat it until it dissolves. Stir in mayonnaise, sour cream, onion , salt, lemon juice, and parsley.
-Combine tuna mix with gelatin mix.
-"Pile into 1 qt mold or six individual molds and chill until firm. Serve with greens and dressing."

If you look at the recipe, there are notes at the bottom, and a recipe for a cucumber dressing that even Grammy wasn't so sure about.

Cucumber dressing

1 cup cucumber, shredded
1/2 cup sour cream
1 ts minced onion
2 ts lemon juice
s&p to taste

-Combine ingredients, chill and serve.
