How about Asian Coleslaw?
1/3c seasoned rice vinegar
2T vegetable oil
2t sesame oil
1 medium head of napa, savoy, or green cabbage, shredded or thinly sliced
1lb carrots, peeled and shredded
1/2c chopped fresh cilantro
4-6 green onions, thinly sliced
First prepare the dressing: In a large bowl mix the vinegar, oils, and salt with a whisk until blended.
Add the cabbage, carrots, cilantro, and green onions. Toss to coat in dressing. Serve right away or refrigerate up to 2 hours.

As far as an appetizer you could skewer chunks of chicken breast and veggies on bamboo skewers, grill or broil and then serve with various Asian sauces from the store (like hoisin, teriyaki, katsu, oyster, etc.)
For a dessert you could do floats or sundaes with Asian flavors. Like green tea ice cream with cream soda or something like that? I'm just brain storming here. Oooh, or sundaes with crumbled fortune cookies on top.
Time to lose the baby weight!
