skid
verb [ I ] UK ​ /skɪd/ US ​ /skɪd/ -dd-

(especially of a vehicle) to slide along a surface so that you have no control:
Tony's car skidded on some ice and hit a tree.

The above are the definition and example of "skid" from Cambridge dictionary.

I couldn't find the adjective form as I want to make a simple expression of:

"The surface of the table is ??? so the bowl with the soup for the baby will not slide away easily."

If there's no adjective form of "skid", can you recommend other words?

Thanks.

Perhaps "nonslippery" is what you are looking for.

A road could have a non-skid surface; a table could have a non-slip surface.
