Portable, dairy-free food ideas?

Going to visit a friend and her new baby. As she'll have her hands full, I will be bringing lunch with me, so it needs to be either cold/microwaveable, and portable. She's also dairy intolerant.

Was thinking of cold roast chicken and salad, but wondered if anyone had any more exciting ideas?

Salad is a good idea - you couls also take tortilla wraps to make fresh.
Or dips - take a pack of pitta breads, some sliced red pepper, carrot batons and other veg, get a pack of houmus and pack of taramasalata - we had that yesterday (I have dd that is allergic to dairy)

Olives

Oh I love those.

But it's the crumbly salty feta that really makes it.

otherwise it's just a soggy salad sandwich.

no can be great
do lots of layers
- roast the veg
use hummus in place of cheese
black olive tapenade
pesto
sunblush tomatoes
thin slices of parma ham
onions melted and caremelised
bag of herb salad
artichokes

the list is endless
