    I’ve always been fascinated my tomato aspic and (at the same time) terrified to actually eat it.

    That looks delicious, because anything with green olives is automatically delicious. I’d do the celery-and-olives-for-artichoke trade-up.

    I grew up eating tomato aspic! It was really good as I remember, but I think that was a better recipe than this one. My mom’s version used V-8 juice, green olives, celery, Tabasco sauce, fresh lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce and… YOU GOT IT, UNFLAVORED GELATIN! Woo-hoo! Come to think of it, it tasted like a Bloody Mary.
