Salad for Potluck Brunch

A friend is having a potluck brunch next weekend, and I have been tasked with bringing a salad of some sort. Any crowd pleasing suggestions? Only criteria here is no fish/seafood. Thanks in advance!
I love a tabouli salad, tortellini if you want pasta-ish with pesto, lentil, or a traditional Greek without all that lettuce. This time of year, there is hardly an farm-stand ingredient that I don't turn into a salad.
Would you consider a fruit salad? This time of year there's so much great fruit available, that it seems a shame not to embrace it.
You could do a red/blue dish with red grapes, blueberries, prune plums, watermelon, strawberries, black raspberries. Whatever is available.
Pair that with a green/yellow dish with green grapes, cantaloupe, honeydew, kiwi, orange or tangerine supremes. Personally, I'd put avocado in there, too.
You wouldn't really need any dressing except maybe a little honey-citrus mixture.
