Just say the word “Passover,” and chances are, someone around you will groan. For a holiday celebrating freedom, Passover sure can get pretty fussy.

That’s why this year we decided to go the no- (or very low-) fuss route. That means simple dishes, sides that can double as breakfast or brunch, salads that take no more than ten minutes to put together and—the cherry on top—desserts that only look complicated.

And even if you decide to go all-out for the seder, at least here are some quick and easy options to keep the rest of the week manageable. Oh, did we mention that they’re all delicious, too?
