    Depends on the "type" of picnic if that makes sense.  We used to do big family picnics at the pool/tennis club my grandparents belonged to, and that would involve grills, hamburgers, hotdogs and various salads that different people would bring - pasta salad, potato salad, tuna macaroni etc.  But if it's just myself or a picnic while going on  a hike, daytrip etc. it's more likely to be sandwiches, water, a piece of fruit and maybe some crackers or cookies, basically the same pack-lunch i would bring to work or wherever else.

    Easy to prepare: fruits--grapes, cherries, maybe honeydew melon--wash and go!

    Ooo, my favorite! We are fans of the easy/self-contained: caprese salad, yaprak dolma, tabouli or kısır, a cured sliced meat called pastırma which can be eaten by itself or with bread, olives, and wine or something sparkly. Maybe a fruit salad if I don't mind lugging it around.

    It depends on whether it's a tailgate or a hike-in. For a tailgate where I can have a cooler I pack devilled eggs, sliced cold ham or roast beef, marinated olives or tapenade, freshly baked bread, hard cheese, hummus, bean or carrot salad, fresh fruit, and brownies along w/ a good bottle of wine or champagne.  If I am eating on the trail, I pack hard cheese, apples and tangerines, dry salami, trail mix, cookies, dark chocolate, and a baguette. I still include wine,  pale ale, or San Peligrino. Never pack in more than you are willing to cart out because trash cans are not always found.
