    I guess it depends on your dessert. Fruit salad is always popular at my work. some people don’t eat carbs or dessert but eat fruit. pasta salad (especially if you keep it vegetarian) is pretty popular too.

    Fruit salad!  It can act like a side, or it can serve as a dessert for those who aren’t into baked goods.

    Congrats on your first catering job!  It’s so awesome that you stared your own business.

    If I were attending the meeting I’d go for the fruit salad, so that’s what I voted for.  Pasta salad also seems to be popular.  I’ve worked at a lot of hotels and seen a lot of catering presentaitons, for what it’s worth.  

    Good luck!

    The fruit is too close to dessert. Since you already have that, i’d do a veggie tray. A lot of people at my work are always wary of pasta salad type dishes (since they can cause food bourne illness if they aren’t kept at the right temp and you just never know. Of course, we all work in microbiology on human pathogens, so take that as you will!). But, they always chow down on the veggies!!

    Veggies are low carb as well….if that’s who you are trying to accommodate.

    Congratulations on your new business and first catering job! You didn’t say WHEN the meeting was so I’m probably too late to vote or put my 2 cents in! But I would go for the veggie tray since you already have dessert. Please let us know how it went!
