jell-o for heid-i

(sorry for the horrible cell phone pics, im being lazy tonight.)

this one goes out for my home girl.
forgot i had this until you said you were molding gelatin today.
think your mom actually gave this one to me before my wedding and its a gem.
I will bring down to show you theses salads/desserts.
My fav are the ones with tuna, cauliflower, cheese bbq or shrimp!

here is one for you to start on:

ring around the tuna (real name...i kid not)

'a beautiful jewel-like entree salad for your luncheon or buffet table'

1 package jello lime or lemon-lime gelatin
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 c boiling water
3/4 c cold water
2 tablespoons vinegar
2 teaspoons grated onion
1/2 c diced cucumbers
1/2 c diced celery
2 tablespoons chopped pimiento
2 tablespoons sliced stuffed olives
1 can tuna, drained and flaked

dissolve jello 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.
