Spicy Beet Slaw

A hot-and-spicy grated slaw will play off the blander, richer flavors of a holiday meal. For extra color, make the slaw with candy cane or yellow beets.

Pomegranate-and-Beet Compote

This vibrant compote, which falls somewhere between a condiment and a side dish, will bring a touch of earthy sweetness to your holiday table.

Flageolet and Lemony Celery Tartines

Creamy and mild, French flageolet beans are favored for slow-cooked dishes such as cassoulets and stews, because the beans keep their shape but still have a meltingly smooth texture.

Cherry-Pistachio Crisps

Deep-red cherries bubbling under a sweet, fragrant, pistachio-flecked topping make individual crisps especially festive. Serve warm topped with ice cream, whipped cream, or Greek yogurt and a sprinkle of chopped pistachios.

Hot-and-Sour Celery Pickles

These simple refrigerator pickles can round out a traditional relish tray or be served as an appetite-whetting hors d’oeuvre. The recipe calls for celery hearts that yield larger, paler slices than stalks. Red chiles create a pretty color contrast, but any hot chiles will work in the recipe. The pickles will keep up to two weeks refrigerated.

Ginger Grape Chutney

Instead of cranberry sauce try this zippy chutney that can be served warm or cold.
