No-Cook Recipes for the Night Before Thanksgiving
Give your oven – and yourself – a break on Thanksgiving Eve and whip up these no-cook recipes for your holiday crowd.
Jeff Mauro’s monster Muffaletta sandwich feeds 8, so just double it if you’ve got a large crew descending upon your house for Thanksgiving. All it takes is a little assembly of deli meats, cheeses and olive salad to serve up a taste of New Orleans.
