Reminds me of one of the times the wife visited me when I was still in the UK. Took her to Sainsbury's which she liked but was amused by the American food section which was essentially just Tex/mex rubbish.

On one of my trips to Istanbul, we went to a "supermarket" grocery store. They had a package of something called "American salad", which turned out to be what we Americans call "potato salad". I just got a kick out of Turks calling it "American salad", as if we Americans don't eat green tossed salads!

Tossed salads. Unfortunately, that term has taken on another meaning.
