Easy hors d’oeuvres are essential for holiday entertaining, and there’s nothing more helpful than having a few quick “go-to” recipes in your repertoire. As you’ll see, none of these recipes calls for bread—it makes hors d’oeuvres too filling, and with the usual heavy holiday eating at this time of year, I like to offer lighter starters. Best of all, parts of all these recipes can be made in advance. Marinated chicken? Prepare it the day before. Hummus? Ditto. Still, if you decide to make these recipes at the last minute, that’s fine too, since they take almost no time at all. Don’t forget, the holidays are for everyone to enjoy—including the cook.
