    Well actually these terms relate to multicultures in the united states. I know that melting pot used to mean that immigrants came to america and adapted to being an american. Learned english, became citizen, so to speak beame an amerian. But I don't understand wht tossed salad means

    People refer to places like new york with a large amount of culture as a melting pot.... and I would assume tossed salad was the same thing but I have never heard that befor
