In their second episode, the Lutheran Ladies head down to the church basement for “Erin’s Recipe Card,” a segment celebrating classic recipes from Lutheran cookbooks. Taste-testing a vintage concoction of pineapple, tuna fish, and magical “goo” (that totally isn’t a New England snack cake, despite what it sounds like), they learn how to “Ring It!” — and why it’s always so important to let your fellow kitchen helpers know whether your contribution is actually a dessert or just a really fancy entree.
Hot Tuna Salad “Ring Ding”
1 1/2 cups tuna or chicken
1 medium can pineapple (crushed, drained)
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup diced celery
1/4 cup almonds or sunflower seeds
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 can crescent rolls or any roll dough / biscuit
(optional: 1 beaten egg)
Combine first six ingredients and toss with salt and pepper. Arrange triangles of dough in circle so that bases overlap. Spoon salad on top of dough in a ring. Fold dough around salad ring, tucking the pointed ends under. Brush with egg (optional). Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes. Serve hot as a main dish or snack.
