Mumsnetters are divided on whether Christmas lunch should include a starter. One thing's for sure: if you're planning on dishing up three courses on an already hectic, food-filled day, it's probably a good idea to keep things fairly simple where you can.

Here's a selection of relatively stress-free starters that will still impress guests. Find more in our Recipes section.
