Squeezing Out Lemon Juice into a Salad

Squeezing Out Lemon Juice into a Salad

It is permitted to squeeze out lemon juice into a salad in order to improve the taste of the vegetables*. One must squeeze the lemon directly on the vegetables (i.e., it is not permitted to squeeze out the lemon juice into a cup and then add it to the salad).

Squeezing out lemon juice into a salad is permitted even if the lemon juice will not be absorbed into the vegetables of the salad.
