    a fruit salad. Buy bananas, grapes, melon, mandarin oranges and any other fruit, chop as needed, toss with the juice of the manadrin oranges. If you have no one allergic to nuts, add chopped walnuts of pecans. Or better to be safe and set them to the side to add as you want.

    I would say chili, brownies, or cookies (if you’re making it)…Egg or potato salad would be good if you don’t want to make something.

    try a nice pasta salad with cous-cous and curry and dried fruits and nuts, or vegetables. Cheap, easy, looks like a gourmet dish and is vegetarian, so everyone will enjoy!

    I suggest that you go to a Trader Joes. They have these incredible wings. You just pop them in the oven and they are great. Otherwise Trader Joes has great appetizers, from shrimp plates to these little spinach popovers.

    Fruit salad is always a hit in the summer! Cut up a fresh pineapple, green apples, strawberries, and/or cantaloupe. Add grapes or whatever you like. Pour in a bit of orange juice to keep it from turning brown. Or try a salad with mandarin oranges, raisins, coconut, and mini marshmallows.

    any kind of noodle salad. look it up on the internet and find one with the least ingredients – ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY WANT FANCY SHMANCY JUNK PUT INTO IT. That’s why it’s called keep it simple stupid (KISS). Make a basic and more people will like it anyway.

    Chicken Catchetori:chicken breast cut into strips (or chicken tenders, whichever is on sale). put them in a pan, dump spaghetti sauce on them. cook for 30 -35 minutes. put mozzerella cheese on top. cook until brown.you’re done.

    Oyster snackers: 12 pkg of oyster crackers. Mix the following & pour over the crackers: 1 cup vegetable oil; one pkg ranch dressing mix, 1 tablespoon garlic powder, and 3 tablespoons dill weed. Everyone loves these, so bring the recipe. Or, spread tortillas with chive flavored soft cream cheese, then layer on thin slices of hard salami. Roll up & chill. After 2 hours, slice into one inch pieces. Great pinwheel snack!

    My favorite thing to bring to a potluck is a pesto pasta salad. All you need is a packet of Knorr’s Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto or Red Bell Pepper Pesto (in the gravy aisle of your local grocery store, cost is 69¢-$1.00); a package of fun & funky pasta noodles ($1.00 if you can buy them on sale); a bag of frozen peas ($1.50 tops); and a container of grated parmesan cheese (the kind you use for spaghetti, $1.00).Cook half of the noodles, then heat the pesto mix according to directions (all you need is oil and water). Add 1 cup of peas to the pesto mix AFTER it starts to boil. Drain the noodles, cover with the mix & peas, then sprinkle on the cheese. Cover, set aside to cool, then refrigerate overnight. It tastes delicious cold and goes FAST! I love it :)Good luck!

    Hmmm….there is a dip you can make that’s easy. It’s just cream cheese and either green or red jalapeno peppers (whatever level of hotness you like). You take both and dump the entire contents and blend them. Bring tortilla chips.If you want to do something a little more extra than that, maybe hot dog casserole. You take hot dogs (fry ’em). Take a casserole dish, put baked beans on the bottom, place the hot dogs on top, take some canned chili and layer over that, cover the whole thing with shredded cheese. Or if you are trying to be healthy, just make a vegetable tray and bring different dips.

    Make ham pickle rollups…just take your choice of lunch meat…whether ham or pastrami, spread cream cheese on it, then put a pickle on it, roll it up, and place tootpicks in sections, and slice them. Real easy and quick, and makes a lot.

    Stop at the store and get some olives. In one jar you can bring something that often can be genetically traced back to the days of Christ and beyond. It’s a wonder they don’t keep them in the back with the crystal meth ingredients and the porn.A dish and little picks for the olives on the side and you have what is a couple thousand years of careful planning, genetically unmolested, and hey, we sacrificed a few trillion tomatoes to distract the genetic engineers from spoiling the unspoiled.You can’t make this stuff up. Have a time with your workmates, and forget the food for a while. They would rather talk to you than eat.

    Here’s a favorite of mine.. it’s quick, easy and cheap.One bag of mulit-colored pasta spiralsone purple onionone large tomatoone green bell pepper (two if it’s small)one bottle Zesty Italian dressingabout 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheeseCook your pasta until it’s firm, try not to over cook. Drain, then put into an ice bath to cool. Drain and put into a large bowl. Then chop all the veggies, add the cheese, and pour the Italian dressing on as you are mixing. You want to coat everything, but not drown it. Salt and pepper to taste. Makes a great side dish or main course, and it’s great for the summer!Good luck.

    If you have a crock pot, toss some frozen meatballs and teriyaki sauce in there. All you have to do is provide toothpicks.
