This is necessary not only to celebrate but to observe the Christmas custom! And what on earth could create the so special Christmas mood better than those tasty dishes on your table?…
Take care of your mains
Main Christmas dishes with their looks and smells will bring you a Christmas mood immediately! A big role play your Christmas recipes list.
1. Turkey with garlic
Also known as Turkey crown Kyiv, this wonderful dish is a true culinary gift for gourmets and meat-lovers. All you need to cook this dish is the meat of turkey, garlic, butter, and a few sprigs of parsley. Taking not that much time to cook, this dish will just win your and your guests’ hearts!
2. Wreath of smoked pieces of salmon
Many people love fish more than meat, after all, and this dish won’t be needless for your holiday table for sure. Most likely, it will add to its palette of tastes and aromas! You even don’t need to cook it from scratch. Just buy a pack of smoked salmon, chop up the pieces of fish, add some black olives and sprigs of some greenery – and put it on a big plate in a wreath shape!
3. Roasted nuts
This is a superb and incredibly easy to make a treat for any tastes and especially for those who don’t eat meat at all. Just bake some nuts (any nuts) in your oven or roast them on a pan – and the incredibly tasteful dish is ready! And yes, it is that simple and that vegan, and, by the way, that beneficial for health and energetic tonus.
Never forget about salads
Salads will never allow you or your guests to get overloaded and can highlight some tones of your main dishes.

Actually, everything about this salad is in its name. Take fresh and crisp bean-pods, add to them cherry tomatoes, feta pops, red onion – and it’s pretty much done! Full of freshness and aromatic juices, it will taste irresistible, lighten, and combine perfectly with any of your mains!
