"This was my grandmother's (Dollie Cowan) recipe. She often served this at luncheons. Tomato aspic sounds a little strange to people nowadays, but it was very popular in the South in the 1930s-50s. Dollie served it on butter lettuce with a little mayonnaise on top."

Tomato Aspic is still on the menu for every good southern funeral. I've never tried it with Raspberry gelatin before though.

I was so happy to find this recipe. I have made this for years only using lemon jello instead of raspberry jello. Great
