Question:

If one gives a super-extreme deli sandwich, (such as salami, bologna, pastrami, smoked turkey, plus pickles, tomatoes, olives, lettuce, red onion, ketchup, mustard, relish, and mayonnaise, etc… on a rye baguette) but no other food is added, is he Yotzei the Mitzva of Mishloach Manos?
Does it matter if there is no one part that is a Kzayis (besides the bread)?
Can the meat be combined to a Kzayis?
Thank you and Gut Shabbos

 

Answer:

According to R’ Moshe Feinstein zt”l and other poskim, if one has a mixture of two foods, that are eaten as one it is considered one type and not like two. Otherwise cholent would be two types because it has potatoes and barley, or kreplach because it is meat and dough, a salad, or a cake which has flour and eggs in it.
