My department at work is having a pot-luck for Halloween.  I'm expected to bring something, and, since I'm the only veggie here, it's got to be something good that I can and will want to eat. 

Here's the difficulty:
-I hate tofu.
-The recipe has to be good cold or easily microwavable - the nuke is the only heating element available.

Any suggestions?

At the last vegan potluck I went to, my favorite thing was the cold sesame noodles, basically chinese noodles in a tahini based sauce with some sauteed veggies.  Or you could do a peanut sauce if you don't like sesame. 

Pasta salad is another good thing to bring along.

that sounds delicious. i've had russets that way, but red potatoes would be so much better!

Thank you. I served them along time ago at a party, now they are one a few differnt things people ask me to bring if I bring a dish somewhere.
I forgot to add that I susually use a mellon baller to scoop out the potatoes.

If you've got time and patience on your hands, you could try vegetarian rice paper rolls (aka Vietnamese or summer rolls).

I made a whole bunch for a pot luck at work a few weeks back, and my coworkers happily gobbled up the bunch.  We have a couple of veggies in the office, so I purposely went meatless to be sure they'd have a bit of a selection to pick from.

My oh-so-wordy recipe and instructions are here:

I love peanut noodle salad. My favorite recipe is from Vegan with a Vengeance, Udon Noodles with Peanut Sauce and Seitan, minus the seitan and made like a pasta salad, chilled.

Or you could wow your co-workers with some cupcakes, namely from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Romero, which is the best book ever and I highly recommend any recipe in it. I made some halloween cupcakes by tinting the batter and frosting orange.
Here's some pictures from the book:
