Help me plan my menu -- starter ideas, please

Tomorrow night we're having somewhat foodie friends around for dinner. We've decided on chicken with 40 cloves of garlic for the main (from European Peasant Cookery, Luard -- great dish). We'll probably pair that with a salad and I've started my no-knead bread. Hubbie is making a cake for dessert. What to start with? Limitations: guest can't eat red meats except for lamb and game (some metabolic thing); needs to be reasonably cheap; need to do most of the work ahead of time (will be putting kids to bed just before guests arrive). A while ago I did a nice roasted green bean salad with red onions and anchovies but I can't find the recipe for the life of me. Think it was from Gourmet, but it's not on Epicurious. Anyway, ideas welcomed! Thanks!
