What's something tasty and easy for a potluck?

Everyone needs a signature potluck dish, right?  Something that they know how to prepare and can put together relatively quickly that will appeal to pretty much everyone.

I don't have one.

Normally this doesn't bother me, simply because I don't go to potluck events all that often, and when I do I just bring something from Charlie's Cheesecake or bottles of soda.  But out here in Boulder, it's actually a problem.  It was decided today that the museum staff's annual party would be a potluck, since the restaurant we had originally planned on closed earlier than usual this season.  One of my coworkers went to culinary school and does catering as a side job.  My boss' wife bakes bread and pastries to sell at the farmer's market.

I can't cook worth beans, so I don't know what to do.  The ingredients for fun things that I know how to cook, like potstickers, are not available in Boulder.  Produce here is extremely limited, so something as simple as a fruit salad is a serious challenge.  I could probably bake cookies or cupcakes, but other people (including the hostess) already plan to provide the sweets.

I really don't know what to do.
