401K Match

So I've been with my company for a long enough time that I get a 401k match and I can join the plan. What would you invest in? Large caps funds? Index fund? Small caps? Foreign? Bonds?
I'm tempted to go foreign because of the strong dollar. Seems cheap to me.

FYI, long real estate.

Index fund seems best given low fees. Thanks for the advice.

Just out of curiosity, how much is the employer match?
I get a lousy 3%
