In the Slate Plus bonus segment of Wednesday’s edition of the Culture Gabfest, Dana, Stephen, and Julia clash over mayonnaise—yes, really.

Plus, other exclusive Culture Gabfest condiment tips: how to improve a PB&J, what else to pair with peanut butter, and a far superior way to make a potato salad—without mayonnaise, of course.
