This is probably one thing I could never do … But that is irrelevant and is a topic for a completely different discussion.

As far as age group, note that it is party for girls and their mothers, so we will have all ages group. I am not going to worry about that, I think everybody eat hamburgers and salads.

Chips, looks like is going to be the choice.

Tomatoes
Pickles
Mushrooms
Peppers
Sautéed mushrooms
Sautéed onions
Crispy onions
Guacamole
Chili
Pesto
Ketchup
Mustard
Dijon mustard
Mayonnaise
Salsa
Thousand island dressing
Ranch dressing
Onion dip
BBQ sauce
Relish
Pineapple
Jalapenos
Question is like this, do we need to make salads? What kind of salads. The picnic is going to be in a part, so no kitchen, but we can make everything ahead of time, but I do not want to make too much stuff because I'm sure all the mommies are on a diet. Like I was thinking corn on a cub, but my wife doesn't think it will fly with ladies.
Please help me out. No Dairy please.
I sort of understand the no dairy not mixing meat w/ dairy, right?. Are your guests not permitted to mix the two, or is about preparing the two together?

If it is no dairy - eggs, milk, cheese, sour cream, be careful with the dressings & dips, & omit anything with mayonnaise.

Burgers - buns, condiments, (ketchup) & cheese (if allowed), lettuce & tomatoes are optional.

Same for hot dogs. Keep it simple.

I would serve salads. I posted a layered pasta salad with vinaigrette dressing, & (layered) fruit salad (w/ honey/lime dressing) ideas/recipes. No mayo or dairy.

I like kasha varnishkas or potato pancakes with my hot dogs.

Chips are not cheap for a crowd. You could go with restaurant-style tortilla chips & salsa, or even a potato pancake pie.

I like the idea of corn on the cob. (Guessing the butter ((dairy)) would be out.) You could make a corn salad tex/mex style.

Chile & onions is great on dogs & burgers. Guessing, no cheese is allowed.

Again, I would keep it simple, and forget about all the extra extra toppings.

Cerise, in this case eggs don't count as dairy.

3. Potato salad: potatoes, mustard, basil, walnuts, hard boiled egg, salami or kosher turkey sausage, tomato cherry, asparagus green sautéed with a bit of scallion or onion sautéed or chive herb snipped.

Hi, Charlie

I was poking around & remembered...

Tyler's Ultimate Burger Bar:

The Burger Bar : Recipes and Cooking : Food Network

I'd go with the Brisket Burgers.

Maybe, it will give you some ideas.

I'd make a pasta salad with a vinaigrette type dressing. No mayo, since you will not have refrigeration. I think you have too many choices for condiments/toppings. Keep it simple, and you won't have to deal with too much leftover stuff.

Thank you, unfortunatelly for some reason all I can get to is one picture, maybe it is work thing, will try at home. Brisket burger for sure is not going to happen, kosher brisket coast in or around $12-15 a pound.

Here ya go, Charlie...

Ultimate Burgers Recipe | MyRecipes.com

Ground beef works too. Since Memorial Day is coming up, maybe it will give you some more ideas to play with.

Here is the idea for the layered pasta salad w/ vinaigrette in a trifle bowl or clear glass bowl, I mentioned. (Use any ingredients ((pasta, veggies, dressing)) you like.) I do the same with fruit salad.

Recipes from Top Tastes

Melon and Mozzarella Salad

Hummus with crudités and pita chips

Babaghanuj Tahine ( eggplant )

Sliced Beetroot & Triple Skin Orange Salad

Potato latkes to go with the Burgers - an alternative to the fries

Green Bean or Green & Red Cabbage Slaw & Red Sweet Bell

Just some last minute thoughts.

Hope all is running smoothly, and that your daughter´s day is very extraordinaire.

Kindest regards.
