Chicken or beef broth will definitely come in handy for New Year’s Eve treats. During New Year’s Eve, traditional foods can be lightened up with other popular foods such as cheese, smoked salmon, tuna, fruit, vegetables and popular quality foods.

Cheese spread with slaw

The softness of the cottage cheese and the distinct taste of niva complement each other perfectly in this spread.


  • half a cup of your favorite cottage cheese
  • amount of niva at our discretion – a minimum of 100 g is suitable
  • butter approx. 50 g
  • 1 onion
  • clove of garlic
  • pepper, salt, chili to taste, or ground paprika


  1. Mix cottage cheese and butter in a bowl, if necessary, use whisks.
  2. Add pre-grated fennel and finely chopped onion.
  3. Stir in the crushed clove of garlic.
  4. Season with salt, pepper and selected spices as needed. As a general rule – the more we put in the niva spread, the less salt we should add – the niva itself is quite salty.

We serve it on favorite pastries, we can decorate it with vegetables (cherry tomatoes, pickled cucumbers) or walnuts.

Salad with herb ermine

Not everyone is in the mood for spreads and canapés on New Year’s Eve, if you are one of those looking for a light meal, this salad is a great choice.


  • at least 2 ermines
  • arugula
  • tomatoes
  • Red onion
  • toast bread on croutons
  • a handful of walnuts
  • butter
  • salt. pepper, favorite salad spices (oregano, thyme, basil)
  • olive oil, balsamic vinegar
  • optional: garlic

The amount of ingredients depends on our preference – whether we want a more vegetable or cheese salad.


  1. In order to speed up the preparation itself, we will first process the ingredients that need heat treatment.
  2. Fry the diced bread in butter. Fry for as long as you like to get crispy. We can also add garlic cut into thin strips to the pan.
  3. As soon as we are done, let it cool down while we prepare the other ingredients. Cut the tomatoes and red onion into small pieces, mix and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Let’s turn our attention to the ermines. We separate the creamy part from the mold, which we mix with the selected herbs in a bowl.
  5. Add arugula and nuts only when serving.

We serve everything together on one plate – chopped vegetables and fresh arugula, ermine paste (can be divided into smaller pieces with a spoon), sprinkled with walnuts and drizzled with olive oil and balsamic.

You can also experiment a little with the ingredients – you can add avocado, different seeds or different types of salad.
