View Full Version : Help! Have Raw Potluck in an Hour!

Anyone have any quick and easy raw ideas for a potluck? I just found out about it and I don't have a lot. No dates, for one thing. I have nuts and seeds of most types and some broccoli, celery, tomatoes, butternut squash, peas, corn...yikes. Not a lot. Any ideas, anyone?

How about throwing together a vegetable plate? Just cut veggies into bite-size pieces and arrange attractively on a plate.
You could make a dip to go along with, here's a few ideas:
-fresh tomato salsa
-an herb dip:
Blend in a blender until smooth and creamy:
raw nuts and/or seeds
vinegar, or lemon juice
salt, or miso
any herbs/seasonings of your choice
Hope this helps, enjoy the potluck!

Okay, thanks for your help guys! I ended up making a veggie tray and bringing an oil/vinegar etc dressing for it. There was the most amazing food there (some people knew about it ahead apparently...it's hard to make cool last minute raw recipes).
Hi, wondering if your potluck was in the city or up by Woodstock NY ? I got invited to one last week but it got snowed out ! Glad you were able to throw something together !
