At the holidays, when salad greens are sometimes not at their best, this tasty salad offers up crisp veggies built into a tangy french-dressing flavored aspic. Cool and zippy, this fits in perfectly with any special meal. We always serve it up at Thanksgiving or Christmas ... sometimes both!

How to Make Festive Tomato Aspic

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a medium bowl (or other suitable container), dissolve the lemon gelatin in the 2/3 cup boiling water per package directions. Stir in the tomato sauce, vinegar and Tabasco. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • 2Put this mixture into the refrigerator for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until the gelatin is thickened but not set.
  • 3While the gelatin/tomato mixture is chilling, wash and dice all of the veggies.
  • 4Fold the diced veggies into the thickened gelatin, stirring gently to distribute evenly. At this time, you can transfer everything into a decorative mold if desired. Cover and refrigerate until firmly set.
  • 5OPTIONAL: Unmold onto a lettuce-lined plate right before serving. Decorate with small dollops of mayonnaise if desired.
