What's your favorite make-ahead appetizer? Dairy Free!

I've been tasked with bringing an appetizer to my aunt's for Easter. There will be 10 adults and 2 children. My cousin is very lactose intolerant, so no dairy permitted, although I believe goat cheese is OK. My other cousin is an extreme low-carber so I'd like to make something he would eat as well, but it's not totally necessary. Also it needs to be something that's either cold or served room temp because it's about an hour drive away from my house, and can be made in one go since I'm limited to Sunday morning/early afternoon for prep. I do not want to reheat anything at her house since I'm sure her oven is scheduled for other things. I'm not sure what else she's serving, but I do know the main is grilled pork tenderloins.

I have a few ideas, one is a sun-dried tomato tapenade, and the other is Ina Garten's, savory palmiers with sundried tomatoes, goat cheese, pesto, and pine nuts. I also thought of maybe just some kind of roasted nut mix with herbs or something. BUT, none of that is really speaking to me.

So, I'm interested to hear what you all have up your sleeves!
