Quick & Delicious: Simplify Your Holiday Entertaining

Simplify your holiday entertaining with this boldly flavored mix-and-match menu. Start with a flaky savory tart—perfect with a glass of sparkling wine—and then choose one salad, one main dish, and one side dish from the recipes here. Each takes less than 45 minutes to prepare, and while the main dish is in the oven, the side dish comes together on the stove. To minimize last-minute stress, you can bake the pastry for the tart, make the salad dressing, and get as many of the other ingredients as you like prepped (section the grapefruit for the arugula and radicchio salad, for example) well before your guests arrive.
