What would be a good appetizer for a fried chicken dinner?

pcdarnell | Jun 10, 2009 08:15 AM

I am having a dinner party Saturday night to celebrate several occasions at once: 2 sons have June birthdays, 1 son just graduated college, and 1 of the birthday boys is home from the Army on a short leave, and school is out for summer for the other birthday boy! Lots happening.
Their all-time favorite meal is fried chicken, potato salad, collard greens, and biscuits. I'm doing sliced heirloom tomatoes and a pineapple and cucumber salad.
Since I am having other people in for the party, I want to have appetizers before the meal so we can enjoy cocktails before dinner. Can anyone recommend a couple of appetizers that would go with a fried chicken meal?
As a side note, my friend is going to make a sheet cake, iced with a solid color frosting, and she's going to bring a variety of colored icings and pastry bags so we can all write messages of congratulations on the cake. We'll take pictures before we devour it.
