Gran L’s Famous Tuna Salad

  • 2 cans tuna (best kind to use is packed with oil) but can use packed with water.
  • ¼ cup pimento stuffed olives chopped
  • 1 tsp chopped onion (I use about ¼ cup)
  • ½ cup celery chopped finely (I use 1 cup)
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp paprika
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice.
  • 1-cup miracle whip (can use Hellmann’s mayonnaise).
  • 2 envelops Knox gelatin….1-cup whipping cream (whipped and chilled)

Dissolve gelatin in ½ cup hot water. Let gelatin sit while mixing all the other ingredients. Then add the softened gelatin to the mixture (mix thoroughly). If mixture is warm, set it in refrigerator freezer 5 or 10 minutes to get it cold.

Last, fold the whipped cream to the mixture and place in casserole pan that has been sprayed VERY LIGHTLY with Mazola spray (same thing as Pam spray only better).

Optional: can sprinkle a little extra paprika on top to garnish. Or can slice some stuffed pimento olives and place on top as a garnish. Or as I do, both paprika and sliced olives on top as a garnish.Chill in refrigerator until firm and serve on a bed of lettuce with fresh sliced tomatoes and crackers.VGI (very good item)….Enjoy
