New vegetarian and I need a dish to take to a family gathering

So I recently made the transition to being a vegetarian and am just starting to compile some fave recipies.
I need to take a dish to a family fish fry on sat and I want to make sure it is something that if fairly balanced for me and good to share as well. I am sure there will be veggies and dip and possibly some fruit.
I could take some deviled eggs and some fruit I suppose.

Oh I should add that I don't really do processed foods and try to stick to whole grains ect.

What about a whole grain pasta salad with chunks of fresh mozzarella or feta and tomatos, bell peppers, etc.

I used to have a recipe for a good cold barley salad. I'll see if I can find it.

ETA: It was like this one, but without the olives.

Re: New vegetarian and I need a dish to take to a family gathering

How about:

Halved cherry tomatoes mixed with a small amount of olive oil, salt, pepper, chopped fresh basil, and grated romano, mozzarella, or parmesan cheese

Store bought hummus and pita chips

Steamed edamame (in or out of shell--yuuuummm!!)

Fresh corn cut off the cob, mixed with halved cherry tomatoes and sliced, lightly boiled okra--season with salt, pepper, and if you want, fresh herbs

Potato salad
