It may look like Jell-O, but crisp, cool tomato aspic is actually a savory summer treat.
Why This Recipe Works
Cutting the cream cheese for our Tomato Aspic recipe into pieces was easier when we chilled it in the freezer for a few minutes first. Tomato sauce provided the deep red color and rich tomato flavor we wanted for our aspic, while lemon-flavored gelatin gave the aspic a crisp, citrusy flavor. To help prevent the aspic from melting, we served it on a chilled plate.
