Can I make a milchig salad if I don’t have milchig knife?



I don’t have milchig dishes. For Shavuos can I make a salad (which will have a cheese topping) using a fleishig knife that is clean and dry for 24 hours?

Is it any different for lemons and garlic?

Can I put the salad in a plastic serving bowl that was clean and not used for a year but was washed with a fleishig sponge back then?



  1. For regular vegetables, it’s not advisable to do so,
  2. For lemons, onion, garlic, it is prohibited, You can buy a cheap knife to cut your salad.
  3. Permitted but not advised.
