Girls night out?

Well, more like day time BBQ/picnic for 11-12 year old girls and their mothers. Main foods are hamburgers, maybe hot dogs. We will try to put out as many fixings as possible, here is tentative list:
Onions
Lettuce
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.

You already have lettuce, tomatoes, etc. If someone wants a salad they can make it from the fixings. Just shred the lettuce a little more than you would for a burger and provide some extra.

I think you have way too many toppings. How many people total?

Is it going to be kosher? If not, sliced cheese would be nice as a topping.

Charlie,

I just thought of this, A Spanish Omelette, which is a frittata prepared with: ( for those who do not eat red meat )

Evoo ( extra virgin olive oil )
onion filling
Eggs
potato filling
Salt and pepper

** A drizzle of ketchup and some bread ...

Teens tend go for this ...

MC.

With burgers and dogs, you might consider beans, potato chips, cold potato salad, coleslaw, deviled eggs. All of these things transport well.

I agree with Andy about too many fixings. Most things of this type I've been involved with, they might have ketchup, mustard, and pickles. Sometimes onions, tomatoes, and lettuce.
