Any suggestions for a side dish to bring to a holiday office party? Best if it needs no refrigeration or reheating.

My very favorite Christmas side dish--no cooking, no reheating, no refrigerations and it's red and green and white and gold: bite-size pieces of cauliflower and broccoli and cherry/grape and/or yellow pear tomatoes tossed gently with a vinaigrette of fresh lemon juice, light olive oil, oregano or dill, red pepper flakes, a splash of water, coarse salt, cracked pepper and a teeny bit of sugar. (I won't tell if you use a bottle of Italian dressing instead.)

Shaved Brussels sprout salad? Lots of ideas on the food52 site: http://www.food52.com/recipes...

Or to be different, maybe a Spanish tortilla dish. Travels well, can be served hot, room temp or cold. http://www.food52.com/recipes...

Or frittata: http://www.food52.com/recipes...

Also the roasted cauliflower gremolata on this site - I brought that to a party and it was great at room temperature http://www.food52.com/recipes...

You could do a Panzanella - Tuscan bread salad - one of those dishes everyone does slightly differently, but the classic components are largely red/green - tomatoes, cucumber, basil... you can vary it to taste (add red bell pepper, anchovy, onion, capers, etc.) Delicious and served at room temp. Here's Lidia's version: http://www.saveur.com/article... ...and Marcella Hazan's: http://www.cooking.com... ...and Ina Garten's: http://www.foodnetwork...

I've made this one several times to rave reviews. It's colors are perfect for the season.

Thanks everyone. I was thinking about the butternut squash/couscous recipe. I made it for a party a few months ago, in Tokyo, and everyone loved it. I should have mentioned, this party is at work. At little like the office -- festive cheer, but no corporate budget. Potluck for lunch. I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks!
