For those of us that do not use vinegar or nuts during the month of Tishrei salad recipes that are healthy and tasty would be really appreciated.September 2, 2010 7:48 pm at 7:48 pm #812094bein_hasdorimParticipant
substitute lemon juice for vinegar.
Doesn’t say anything about lemon juice.September 2, 2010 8:07 pm at 8:07 pm #812095SacrilegeMember
If it is a mayo based dressing just use water.September 2, 2010 8:14 pm at 8:14 pm #812096rcParticipant
so… just asked very reputable posek about this inyan. THe answer was as follows. As long as the totzaah is sweet, vinegar as an ingredient is OK. so salad dressings with honey or sugar shouldnt be a problem.September 3, 2010 1:23 am at 1:23 am #812097mybatMember
I heard about the nuts on r”h, but never heard about the vinegar and during the whole month either. (Subsitute with lemon juice)September 3, 2010 2:44 am at 2:44 am #812098oomisParticipant
I never heard about vinegar. Nuts (egoz)ostensibly are equal in gematriah to cheit (sin), so we are noheig not to eat them at this time. BUT, aleph= 1 gimel = 3 vov= 6 zayin =7 and
ches= 8 tes =9 and aleph =1.
You do the math. (I know, I know, one more or less is not significant, so they say. Still, I believe If you are already doing gematriah, do it consistently and don’t kvetch the answer to fit your idea). (and BTW, I do not eat nuts, either, during this time).
In any event, what is the problem with vinegar altogether? The sour taste? If so, cider vinegar and rice vinegar are sweet, as is balsamic. So what is the inyan of this minhag ?September 3, 2010 3:22 am at 3:22 am #812100charliehallParticipant
We have always used lemon juice rather than vinegar in almost all recipes, even though we don’t hold by the minhagim you mentioned.September 3, 2010 10:56 am at 10:56 am #812101bmwParticipant
thanks for the lemon juice idea. Happy cooking!!September 3, 2010 12:19 pm at 12:19 pm #812102haifagirlParticipant
The people I know who don’t use vinegar also don’t use lemon juice. They use orange juice in their salad dressings.September 3, 2010 1:43 pm at 1:43 pm #812103basmelechParticipant
I always make a basic salad with a little olive oil, freshly squeezed lemon juice,and a little salt, that’s all. Its easy and very good.Fresh lemon juice is far better than the bottled kind.I just cut up the veggies, pour on the seasonings, mix it up, and – it’s done!September 25, 2011 1:48 am at 1:48 am #812104whole wheatMember
The Minhag is to not eat vinegar of any kind. Lemon juice is fine.
