    I am new to this site, am home having a snow day! I would love the Ben's recipe! I truly enjoy a good cole-slaw. It's funny that someone wrote how commercial mayo is Kosher, but you cannot get it on a sandwich in a Kosher restaurant like Deli-King in Lake Success, I am not sure about Ben's though. If you choose to share the recipe with me I say thanks, if not, I understand.

    of course may is kosher and parve- after all, here are the basic ingredients--

    1 egg yolk
    1/2 teaspoon fine salt
    1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
    2 pinches sugar
    2 teaspoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
    1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
    1 cup oil, safflower or corn

    whip it up in a blender.

    hellmans is marked kosher, as are many other commercial brands.

    Being Kosher has nothing to do with the dietary laws that say you cannot mix dairy with meat. That is why you can't get mayo on a meat sandwich. I am sure the coleslaw is made with a non dairy mayo....

    Robin,

    I'm not sure what you are referring to when you say "being Kosher has nothing to do with the dietary laws that say you cannot mix dairy with meat." The laws which prohibits mixing meat and dairy are an integral part of keeping Kosher. There is, however, nothing that I have ever heard of which prohibits eating mayonnaise with meat.... although that may be true somewhere in the world. I wonder if you would be good enough to tell us your source on this.

    I have always enjoyed mayo on my roast beef and turkey sandwiches (when I don't have Russian dressing on hand!v icon_cool.gif ) As chia and others have said, all the commercially made mayos in the US are kosher and I have never, ever seen one that was NOT pareve - and thus perfectly acceptable to eat with a meat sandwich.

    Robin, my intent was not to make you feel badly or embarrass you in any way, but you sounded as though you had been taught something which is contradictory to what I know. I was wondering where you learned it. If you want to discuss it but not in public, please feel free to z-mail me. If you dont have z-mail let me know here and I will z-mail you, then you can reply.

    What a wonderful site! I am so happy to find it. I struggle to make side dishes "creamy" without milk to go with meat meals. I, too, would love to try the coleslaw recipe if you are able to share with one more person. If not, I understand. I do not think I have z-mail, however. I am grateful for the wisdom you more experienced cooks have shared. I will have to post some of my own questions which I am sure you can answer, and keep reading! Thank you for this forum!

    Well just wanted to give you an update. Thank you Mirj for obtaining the recipe for me. I tried it last night finally and while it is clearly on the right path, the dressing is still not quite there. It did produce the almost milky quality, but the dressing I was served came out very very white and mine at home had a slight yellow tinge (the Hellman's mayo is a little bit yellow). The flavor was not quite sweet enough - I am going to keep tweaking the measurements. I think all of the elements are there ingredients-wise, it is proportions that just aren't quite the same.

    Hi Heatherfeather,
    I'm very interested in how you tweak your recipe for cole slaw. I am also a big lover of the cole slaw at Ben's. I would love to see your recipe after you're done tweaking it.

    Folks....

    I go to Ben's all the time and yes.. my favorite coleslaw.
    I have wanted their recipe also. I never thought to actually ask the waitress. I'll do so and see if I can squeeze it out of her. I'll share with you when I do.

    As for kosher... Mayo is NOT dairy. It's considered "parve" which means dairy or meat. so yes, there must be mayo in it.
