New Year's salads: 10 unusual recipes
New Year's salads are one of the main dishes on the festive table. Each hostess has her own branded recipes - we do not offer to completely abandon them and offer guests everything new. Make the menu in such a way that it includes both original and traditional salads for the New Year. The highlight of the table may be your signature salad, which you prepare from year to year, and let all the other dishes be unusual.
Be creative - try some warm New Year's salads (sometimes they can even replace a hot dish), feel free to add fruit (for example, pears go well with walnuts and blue cheese), use more herbs, add a couple of unusual ingredients (for example, salmon in olivier). Properly selected New Year's salads will be a great addition to a theme party - Hawaiian, Italian or Mexican.
Decoration of festive dishes deserves special attention. Salads for the New Year can be decorated with an unusual serve. Serve the seafood cocktail in high martini glasses, the filler in portioned glasses, any other salad in chicory leaves or original tartlets.
By the way, if you want to get as few calories as possible this year and not overeat, start with the main dish, and leave snacks and New Year's salads for later. Thus, you can eat less, because a hot dish will immediately give you a feeling of fullness.
