Q: I’m attending a dinner party this weekend and was asked to bring a gluten- and dairy-free appetizer. The hostess plays a bit with the Paleo diet, so sugar is probably best avoided as well. A bonus would be incorporating some veggies since I know dinner will be meat-heavy. Any ideas?

Editor: Our go-to, any-diet appetizer this summer has been soba noodles (make sure to find 100% gluten-free soba) in cucumber cups. They’re a hit with any crowd! Spicy roasted chickpeas are another favorite.
