Appetizer ideas..... with dietary restrictions

wineaux | Jun 4, 2013 07:56 PM

I'm normally the person everyone goes to for appetizer ideas, however, I am now completely stumped. I need to make 2 appetizers for an outdoor concert this weekend, so they will need to be something that travels well. We'll be outdoors from about 3 - midnight and will be drinking plenty of wine under the stars! The problem is there are numerous dietary restrictions for some of the small group (3-4):

1) no tomatoes
2) no citrus
3) low sodium
4) not spicy
5) low fat
6) minimal dairy

The only one I've come up with so far is black bean, corn & avocado salsa (w/o tomatoes). I had thought of the proscuitto-wrapped asparagus until I saw the sodium content. I was planning on making a roasted corn & jalapeno hummus (reducing the jalapenos by 1/2), only to find out they don't like hummus.

Any other ideas greatly appreciated!
