gluten-free, dairy-free "before"

Help--I have a Thanksgiving guest whose diet is getting more restrictive as the day draws near. Does anyone have ideas for something light before dinner--usually I would just put out bowls of almonds, etc.,--but this person can't have gluten, dairy (no cheese, of course), and no nuts?? I'm stumped.

Hummus and baby carrots. But please don't stress too much about this. I've been lactose intolerant all of my adult life. When I eat at a friend's house or out, I accept that I'm going to suffer the consequences after or just eat what I can tolerate.

Suggest to your guest that they bring their own food.

Scotch smoked salmon, possibly with minced red onion, lemon wedges, and capers.(Others can eat it with small slices of black bread). Deviled eggs. Celery, carrot sticks, olives, radish, with flavored mayonnaise or hummus.

Perhaps it's the Midwestern in me, but can this guest have eggs? I always love a good deviled egg around the holidays. I always make mine very simply, combine the yolks with a little mayo and Dijon mustard to taste along with some salt. Also, sliced salami and cucumber pair well and look gorgeous next to each other on a small platter.
