I was trying to think of an alternative to the damper or savoury scone we would have served that with. We also use pita bread cut into triangles, baked and then served with toppings like the fish.

Toasted pitas are great! so are bagel chips. nice alternatives to crackers!

Hummus and Baba Ghanouj are great non-dairy additions to any party table, imo.

For a salad you can finely chop (without turning to mush) some lettuce and other ingredients found in salad. Toss with an approved dressing. Obviously go light on the dressing but a bit of salt and pepper add much flavor. Place a dollop of the salad in a hollowed out cherry tomato.

Thank you every one. The problem with the even is "no kitchen" situation. Otherwise many of you sugestions sound good, very good. Need to run them by boss-man. See what he wants to do. Thank you again everybody.

I would avoid Latke's. Warmed over I find them less than appetizing...

OK, no dairy, no pork, no shellfish.

How about beef carpaccio? A little green salad with a balsamic dressing. You could even roll them up and skewer with a toothpick. Use a good piece of meat, perhaps thin sliced flat iron steak...better would be kosher beef..

Lox, halved cherry tomatoes, seasoned olive oil, serve on a bit of toasted pita bread or matzo crackers..

fruit salad

All above served cold.

Chicken soup..

Would Chicken and noodles count as kosher??

Chicken and noodles are very much so kosher, if they are made from kosher ingreedients.
I like the lox idea, mostly because i simply like lox.
I am beginig to think that maybe we should do everythin uncooked, and then we can do dairy.

I would also assume that no pork products are allowed either.
A lot of the items Keltin listed could be made with turkey versions of the pork.

Great idea. To be honest though, I really goofed on this one. Iím not used to it being spelled Chanukah but am more accustomed to it spelled as Hanukkah.

For some reason, I completely overlooked that this was a Jewish event and thought Kwanzaa instead!

Oops.
