5 Recipes for Christmas Day that Made the “Nice” List December 20, 2018 – Posted in: Holidays, Lifestyle, Recipes

Not sure what to make for Christmas dinner? These 5 recipes will make a complete meal for your holiday table.

Homemade Vinaigrette

A homemade vinaigrette is the best way to step up your salad game during the most wonderful time of the year. Whisk this up in 10 minutes and mix with your favorite salad. Try fresh spinach, dried cherries, and toasted hazelnuts.

Braised Short Ribs

Nothing smells more like Christmas than cinnamon, ginger, and cloves cooking away in the oven. With just a half hour of prep, you can let these sweet and spicy citrus ribs braise to molten tenderness while you finish the rest of your holiday cooking.

 

Potato Wedges

Crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside, these upscale french fries are an easy side for the holiday meal. Mix it up and use sweet potatoes or a mixture of the two to add some color to the table.

Garden Herb Sauce

Serve your potato wedges with a fresh herb sauce that brightens up a heavy Christmas meal. The sauce is tangy, full of seasonal herbs like rosemary and sage, and is easy to make. You can even make it the day before.

Dark Chocolate Pistachio Truffles

Save the pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving and make what everyone actually wants: chocolate. Creamy truffles are rolled in bright green pistachios that pop on the holiday table. Switch it up with spiced pecans or crushed peppermint, if you like. You can even make a few extra and send your guests home with a party favor, or gift them to neighbors and co-workers.
