Thanks to these make-ahead salads, you can spend more time with loved ones around the table instead of hours cooking in the kitchen this holiday season. Not only do they make meals easier, but they pair well with just about anything, and can be eaten cold or room temperature (which is great for when you can’t warm up dinner until after candle lighting). And in most cases, they’ll magically taste better the next day!


So if you haven’t planned your Yom Tov menus yet (or even if you have), make sure to add some of these recipes to the list! They’re all recipes that will guarantee you more time to relax. And if we do say so ourselves, they are all super delicious!
