Do you love to entertain but sometimes find it hard to juggle the day-to-day demands and throw in something fun like a holiday party with friends and family? During the holiday season though, make it a priority to do just that …even though finding the time to plan, shop, prepare and cook the food, and THEN decorate the table seems impossible. Look for timesavers to help get the job done. We have a few party tips we think might help you in throwing your next party.
When planning a menu try to focus on the main dish. Some go-to’s are a roasted turkey, pork loin or fried chicken.
While the main dish is cooking, focus on the sides. Many times you lean on those easy rice sides where all the ingredients are in one package or you buy some fresh mashed potatoes from the grocery store that can be heated up at the last minute. But, here’s the kicker.
And the big secret… up the wow factor on your big dinner by picking up a variety of large salads from Crispers. Yes, you heard right. Like any good restaurant, we are here when you need us. Avoid chopping vegetables or slicing fruit. Let Crispers do all the work (and really, you could play naive and take all the credit). Order three different kinds of salads—The SuperFood, the Southwest and a classic Caesar. When you get home put each one in a large ceramic bowl, making them just that much more pretty than they already were. This gives your guests a lot of options and makes it look like you have slaved away in the kitchen all day.
If you are having a small get together, maybe a brunch with your girlfriends, the Summer Salad is a perfect mix of sweet, savory and delicious. You can also give your dinner an international twist with our Greek, Thai or Caribbean Salads. Each large salad we offer feeds about 4 side salad servings and guests really appreciate the variety. Mix and match, play with the choices you offer your guests. They really are beautiful salads and even better, with Crispers they are fresh and ready when you need them.
