Yeah, we know: We told you how to reheat everything from pasta to pizza to pancakes. Some things are just better when they're hot. But not everything! Some foods -- even if they were served fresh out of the pan or the oven the night before -- are even better when they're cold. And it's these things that give us that little snacky pleasure: a piece of steak plucked from the fridge and sprinkled with flaky sea salt; fried chicken that makes up in cohesiveness what it lacks in hot crunch; lasagna eaten out of the pan by the spoonful. No, it's not a precise science -- you might even disagree with us. But there are just some leftovers that taste great out of the freezer, pulled from the refrigerator, or eaten after it's been sitting on the counter for a while. Here are 13 of our staff's favorites.
