Hosting a meal during the holidays already comes with enough stress – but what to do if you learn last minute that a guest has dietary restrictions? You’re in the right place. We’ve dug through our recipe archives to find delicious menu suggestions – appetizers, mains, sides and desserts – for four common diets: gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan and Paleo. (Sorry, Paleo followers, since sugar is forbidden, that rules out dessert for you - we suggest ending the meal with a selection of approved fruits and nuts.) The best part? Guests who don’t have any off-limit foods will love these wonderful dishes, too.
