Nuts maybe? I usually don't take nuts to parties because people tend to scoop them up with their possibly contaminated hands, and they're expensive.
Have you checked out any Indian vegetarian recipes on line? I have a casserole dish that came with a hot/cold pack that keeps hot food hot and cold food cold. It came with a quilted carrier too... purchased it at one of the big box stores. You could do coleslaw or broccoli slaw with a vinegar dressing vs mayo, 3 bean salad, quite a few things.
Regarding the fruit salad, I've taken fruit salad to events in the dead of summer held outside in the subtropics, just used a cooler as previously suggested. Packaged back up fruit in zip locks in the cooler to replenish the bowl.
Hummus, guacamole or a Roasted Eggplant dip with gluten-free chips is the only other suggestions I can think of that are vegan and gluten-free,
