  1. Drain all 4 cans of tuna and put in large mixing bowl.
  2. Hard boil 2 eggs.
  3. Fine chop onions and olives and hard boiled eggs and put in mixing bowl with tuna.
  4. Add 2 cups of mayonnaise and mix well.
  5. Bring about 1 cup of water to a boil. Measure out 1/4 cup with measuring cup. Mix with 1 packet Knox Gelatin in separate mixing bowl until gelatin is dissolve. Add to bowl with other ingredients and mix threw and threw for 1 minute.
  6. Chill in refrigerator in a mold or any storage container.
  7. Unmold and serve with crackers.
  8. ***Grandma suggests chilling overnight. I have tried the dip right away after preparing, still good but Grandma's suggestion is really what works best. I also had suggestions to leave a little olive out and add a little relish or even some minced garlic. There are many ways you could alter this recipe to fit your liking. You could add a little spices to this if you prefer a spicy dip also. If you do try to alter in anyway and find it pleasant please let me know, I would love to try! ENJOY!
