Set Up the Sideboard
Remove clutter from the dining table by setting out all the dishes on a sideboard and letting people serve themselves. It's OK to put everything out together. Seeing all the offerings—even dessert—helps folks pace themselves. Also, make sure your menu includes serveral fresh vegetable side dishes. You need those lighter bitess to help balance the plate.
For example, try this Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprout Salad.
We love Brussels sprout salads but wanted a quicker approach than the tedium of pulling apart the leaves. The food processor slices each sprout nice and thin with lightning-fast speed.
