8 No-Cook Recipes For A Quick & Easy Holiday Party

Designed by Paola Delucca.
As much as we love the idea of hosting big holiday parties, there's always one barrier that curbs our excitement: Cooking for a big group is no easy feat. No matter what we do, there's never enough time to make everything, and even if there was, our kitchen counter can barely fit a single pan.
So to make your upcoming holiday hosting duties as stress-free as possible, we teamed up with Torresella Wines to let you in on the secret to easy holiday cooking: festive dishes that don't require an oven or stove. Ahead, we've rounded up eight of our favorite no-cook recipes, from a fun way to use those Thanksgiving leftovers to the best no-bake dessert balls you'll ever make in 10 minutes. This year, spend more time hanging out with your friends and less time worrying about when you have to baste the turkey (or what basting even means).
