Re: How do you do "easy days"

If it is a definable metcon event (Fran) I'll do it in one of two ways:

Scaled to lower weight/reps via a Brand X scaled workout. (The common 50% approach)
Not for time. (Allows more time for resting if needed)

If it is a strictly strength event, I'll lower the weight or do a Brand X scaled version.

If it is a power/speed event (say olympic lifts) I will do mainly form work with lower weight or a pvc pipe.

The biggest thing I do though is make it active rest, I don't just sit on a couch all day, I may go for a bike ride after the scaled WOD or take the dog's for an extra walk.
