If you are planning to celebrate holidays then here are the best 5 menus for a holiday feast.

 


Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin Recipe: You only need to have few or say four ingredients to make the tastiest pork loin of your life.


 

It is surely going to be the crowd pleaser! The pork is marinated in the balsamic vinegar. Other than that you will need steak seasoning rub, and olive oil to make it.  You can add honey to the balsamic vinegar, while marinating. The pork roast turns soft and moist right inside the oven, when the juices undergo rich and flavorsome “balsamic reduction”. You can team up this balsamic roasted pork loin with Pinot Noir, Mock Champagne, and Sangria Barcelona Style.

Herbed Walnut Potato Salad: Although this potato salad tastes good at the summer picnic, it tastes warmer during holiday feast. A flavorful potato salad treated with toasted walnuts can be served as the side dish during all times of the year. You will need two types of potatoes namely red potatoes and Yukon Gold potatoes, diced bell pepper, green onions, chopped walnuts, ham cubes and fresh basil for preparing the salad. And balsamic vinegar, virgin olive oil, Dijon mustard, sea salt, and freshly ground black pepper to prepare the dressing. You can prepare the salad a day in advance, but for an added effect just lace it with basil and walnuts at the time of serving.

French Onion Pie: This is a classic French holiday side dish, which can be teamed up with any main dish. The great thing about this pie is that it is prepared using bacon, which is rarely found in any other traditional pies. You will need bacons, sliced onions, freshly ground pepper, salt, milk, heavy cream, all-purpose flour, eggs, unbaked pie crust, and ground nutmeg to prepare this onion pie. If you feel that the milk and heavy cream lies on the heavy side, then you can lighten the recipe by replacing it with soy milk.

Braised Carrots, Celery and Fennel:  You can team this with any main dish. You will need carrots, celery, bulb fennel, sugar, red onion, chicken stock or salt-reduced vegetable, salt and pepper, and butter to prepare this dish. This is an out and out "nutritious" dish because celery is low in kilojoules and rich in potassium and fibers.

Broccoli Quiche with Mashed Potato Crust: Trust us, this is one of the best ways of preparing and serving broccoli'.
