I am attending a Pink Cocktail Party this weekend and have been charged with bringing an hors d'oeuvres. I am not certain what cocktails will be served, but given that they will all be pink, I am guessing they will be tooth-achingly sweet: cosmos, watermelon martinis, strawberry margaritas, pink slippers, etc.
With so much sugar going around, I don't want to bring a dip that will fall flat on a palate overworked by alcopops. I'd also prefer something that won't upset stomachs sensitive to sweet drinks. Unfortunately, the hostess is also a very picky eater so there can be no meat, bell peppers, eggs or mushrooms inter alia. Other guests are playing it safe with cheese and crackers, salmon dip, lox on cucumber rounds and a cream cheese crostini. Any suggestions on what I should make? No-cook options are preferable as I have to bring the appetizer to work before the party.
