Dear Kosher Spirit,

Is it permissible to soak and wash lettuce on Shabbos and Yom Tov? How about pre-checked lettuce that says to wash before using?

The OK Responds:

It is permissible to soak, wash and check all lettuce on Shabbos and Yom Tov. It does not have to be done immediately before the meal, because washing is not considered a form of separating. Please refer to our Vegetable Checking Guide for complete instructions.
