Picnic - Appetizers - Ideas Please

TSAW | Aug 5, 2014 11:08 AM

Our Dinner Club theme this month is “Picnic”. I’ve been tasked with bringing appetizers. I know that with a picnic, appetizers aren’t really typical. But to keep things categorized we have other people bringing “meat/main”, “Sides/Salads” and Dessert.

I’ve struggling all week on what to bring as the ‘appetizer’. I cannot bring meat or a salad, as that’s assigned to someone else. Devilled eggs are out due to an allergy. To add to the limitations, everything must be prepared/cooked and kept cold. There is no facility for cooking. I was considering bringing a home made ricotta cheese, some fancy crackers, a drier cured sausage and maybe some spicy almonds. But that all sounds super boring to me.

Any brilliant ideas from fellow Chowhounds on picnic appetizers would be much appreciated.
