My family is doing a big whole to-do for my grandparent's 80th birthday. The theme is "Beachy BBQ", and I want to bring something that's not the normal pasta salad/potato salad/veggie burger blah blah food. Any ideas? There's going to be a ton of people there, but this is mainly appetizer thing. If all of one side of the family comes, we'll have enough food to feed 1000 people.
My family really likes to cook, and I'm not that great, but I try.

Fish, duh. Oh wait, what do you mean vegetarians don't eat fish?! You're Crazy!

For realz, though, maybe tropical fruit skewers? Pineapple and peaches are fabulous grilled, maybe through some strawberries on there, too?

I've heard of grilled pineapples, but never heard of grilling other fruits. I'll think about it.

I've never heard of that. *Runs to Google* My friend also mentioned Quinoa salad, which I've never had but I'll try it. These are good ideas, thanks! Feel free to add more if you think of any, I'm really indecisive.

that first one is basically a southwestern salad......haven't tried that one, but bet it would be good! I love anything with cumin in it.

B said I should make deviled eggs, as they're fairly filling. I think I might do that, and another side dish.

I will! There's going to be sooo much food. My stepdad's family is HUGE (he's one of six, they all have kids, some of them have kids,there's friend's we've adopted as family, marriages/divorces/re-marriages, everybody gets along etc..). If all my stepdad's family brings something, there will be enough to feed thousands of people. I might get leftovers!

You might try this recipe. I got it off the Whole Foods Market website. I have another that I got out of the Whole Foods cookbook, that isn't on their website. Yet. If you don't have a Whole Foods Market, a lot of Asian grocery stores sell things like this. I haven't tried to make this yet, so I don't know how good it is.

Essential Sea Vegetable Salad
1 oz arame
1 oz hijiki
I oz dulse, cut into strips
1 cup grated carrots
¼ cup baby spinach leaves, washed andstemmed
1/8 cup tamari or soy sauce
½ cup sunflower seeds, toasted
3 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
1/8 cup brown rice vinegar

Place the arame and hijiki in a large bowl.Bring 2 cups water to a boil, and pour it over the arame and hijiki. Allow tosoak for 30 minutes before draining them into a colander and rinsing with coldwater.
Place the plumped sea vegetables in a mixingbowl and add the dulse, carrots, spinach, tamari, sunflower seeds, olive oil,and vinegar, and mix well.
