The menu sounds good, but I don’t really think of quiche as a side dish: it’s usually pretty heavy and I treat it like a main course. I would think about a cold vegetable, like a vegetable salad: it would go well with the rest of the cold dishes. Something slightly “fancier” than normal vegetables but still fairly easy to prepare.

Here’s a cucumber salad recipe I’ve used before:

And a green bean salad that looked really good:

I always think something green looks beautiful on a plate!

@RapunzelRapunzel:  Agreed, a vegetable salad would go great with the sandwiches and usually everyone likes it!!  

I wouldn’t do the quiche either, unless it was the main dish because it is very heavy.

I actually like the idea of offering chicken salad croissants & quiche. It’s great for a brunch, because you can choose whether you want more breakfast food or lunch food. I think a fruit salad and a traditional salad would be great additions to the menu (although, I don’t like ambrosia salad…if you think everyone will like it, you can just leave off additional fruit salad).

The menu sounds good! I love chicken salad with croissants. How about a nice green salad as a side dish? One of my favorites is:

Cranberry Goat Cheese Salad

-dried cranberries

-field greens

-goat cheese (small chunks)

-pumpkin seeds

-grilled portabello mushrooms (optional)

-balsamic vinaigrette

Enjoy!
