Pitiful request for a salad suggestion - Please?

Okay, I'm embarassed to even post this, but many of y'all know me around here and hopefully know I'm not a total idiot <grinning>.

My son's soccer team is having an end-of-season pool party. They will be ordering pizza and will have desserts. I volunteered to bring a salad because I'm not a big fan of Dominoes Pizza and would like a healthy option. Ideally, the salad would serve 10-15 people, transport easily and be edible on paper plates. I'd like to purchase most of the ingredients from the local farmers market. Options there include a variety of lettuces, greenhouse tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, fresh goat cheese, radishes, onions, etc.

I am at a loss, people. The best I could come up with is a vegetable salad (add some store bought cukes, peppers) w/ a goat cheese vinaigrette and maybe some home made croutons and farm fresh diced boiled eggs.

Any suggestions? Keep in mind it must appeal to, how can I say, simpler pallettes. Nothing to exotic or out of the ordinary, if you know what I mean.
