Easy lunch for guests - no egg!

My parents and siblings are visiting tomorrow and staying, arriving around lunch so I said we would make a simple lunch if they wanted, said breads/ cheese/ quiche etc which they said great to

But then I remembered that 2 can't eat egg so quiche is out of the question. I was planning on getting some quiche and bread and cheese from the local deli in the morning as they are great, but now not sure what I can get instead.

It needs to be easy as myself and dh need to work from home tmz am a bit, and guests arrive around 1pm, but we all have tickets to theatre at 3pm so nothing that takes too long to eat/ clear up. We are all going out in the eve to a restaurant so lunch can be simple

So...after an essay... What can I try and grab easy tomorrow? Have supermarkets and a few delis nearby. To go with a salad/ bread/ cheese etc... Or can we just for that without seeming rude!

ready roasted chicken with the Leon superfood salad - quinoa / feta / pumpkin seed / mint/ cucumber etc and maybe some roasted sweet potato on the side. I'll drop by if there's any spare...

You could boil a few new potatoes or make a potato salad if you are having a late meal in the evening.

I'd go for sliced (by deli man obv, not sweaty packs) manchego and Serrano ham.
