Best make-ahead salad or veggie tapas?

I need to make some salads and vegetarian tapas ahead of time for a 3 day writing retreat. They have to be refrigerated for a few days, but I could toss together some separate ingredients. I don't want to do any cooking and very minimal prep in the 3 days. Must be gluten free. Any suggestions?

How about a vegetable crudite platter? I recommend a mixture of raw and roasted vegetables and a garlic aioli. Assemble ahead and take out to serve.

I hear that Brazilian pao de queijo can be made GF and freeze/reheat quick easily. https://www.thekitchn.com...

In winter, a good Cole slaw. Include vegetables of many colors and some dried fruit. Can sit in fridge several days already dressed. For more flavor and crunch, top with roasted nuts just before serving

Here’s another....red beet and red onion salad. Dressing is usually very simple vinegar, oil, salt and pepper. Can be made days ahead of time as well.
