|Ring-Around-the-Tuna is Chef Andy's personal nomination for worst recipe of all time! A "spicy" ring of shiny green gelatin studded with cucumber, celery, and TUNA!?? What were they thinking? If you showed up to a potluck dinner with this in hand, why on earth didn't they shove you back out the door and fling it after you in disgust?||
1 package (3 oz.) Jell-O Lime or Lemon-Lime Gelatin 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup boiling water 3/4 cup cold water 2 tablespoons vinegar 2 teaspoons grated onion 1/2 cup diced cucumber 1/2 cup diced celery * 2 tablespoons chopped pimiento * 2 tablespoons sliced stuffed olives 1 can (7 oz) tuna, drained and flaked (*) or reduce celery to 1/4 cup and substitute 1/2 chopped tomato for the pimiento. Dissolve Jell-O Gelatin and salt in boiling water. Add cold water, vinegar, and onion. Chill until very thick. Stir in remaining ingredients. Pour into individual ring molds or a 1-quart ring mold. Chill until firm. Unmold on crisp salad greens. If desired, serve with additional tuna and top salads with mayonnaise. Makes 3 2/3 cups, or about 4 entree servings.
