Update: I heard from the hostess who asked that I bring an appetizer/dip instead of a side dish or dessert.
I am going to a housewarming. They are supplying a whole roast pig cooked in a caja china (yum!) and are asking folks to bring side dishes, appetizers, dips or desserts.
The host told me that people tend to bring dessert when they can't come up with something else to bring so I thought I would make a couple of appetizers or dips that I could bring with me.
I'm looking for easy things that can be served cold or at room temp.
