For me, I think I love cold fried chicken as my pic for best picnic food. It is no surprise to me that it's the most popular picnic food. It's easy to transport and is just right cold. I'll take a couple of drumsticks, please. After the fried chicken I will go right for the salads. All types of salads! Potato salad, macaroni salad, antipasto, Chow Chow, cole slaw, etc. I love them all and they are perfect for a summer picnic.
