At our house, Thanksgiving is really just another great excuse to have a dinner party, and it's always in the evening, so something delicious to serve with drinks is a must. With ovens, stoves and microwaves doing triple duty for the main event, the last thing I want to fuss with is hors d'oeuvres. Here are 11 of my favorite supereasy no-cook recipes to make yourself or send to friends or family when they ask what they can bring.
1. Italian Tuna Mousse
This luscious mousse from star chef Michael Chiarello is practically ready in the time it takes to open a can or jar of tuna. The only thing that's key here is using a good-quality tuna packed in olive oil for best flavor, If you want to get fancy, this mousse is delicious piped into mild or spicy peppadews.

2. Creamy Spinach-and-Shrimp Dip
There's no work at all involved in this lovely dip from Melissa Clark, since it's made with frozen spinach and cooked and shelled shrimp.
