My now-wife took me and a bunch of friends on a float trip in Missouri a few years back. The friends were all Cali born and raised. After the weekend, we stopped at her grandparents for lunch before the flight back. Grandma brought out sandwich bread and a big bowl of chicken salad... My buddy goes "ohhhh, THAT'S what chicken salad is?? I always thought that's what you called salad with chicken..."
