Quick appetizer suggestion needed for tonight (guests have various dietary restrictions)

The Oracle | Jan 30, 2014 10:35 AM

I'm having a group of 5 over tonight. One is a vegetarian, one is dairy-free, and one is doing paleo (low-carb), the other two will eat anything.

I'm starting with a green salad, and moving on to brown rice pasta (the paleo is ok with it) - one sauce with veggies, another sauce with meat.

What I'd like to have is some sort of appetizer as they arrive. Usually, I'll do hummus and crudites, but I feel like that's what I always serve this group. I just thought about cheese/crackers/salami (that way, the each of the restricted food groups could do their own thing)... actually, that's not a bad idea!!!!

I've never pulled off bruschetta well, and I figured bread being vehicle would be limiting to the non-grains person.

Any other ideas that might complement the red-sauce pasta main?
