How Much Juice?

After my Mango Salad post, I received several emails asking how many limes were needed to make 2 tablespoons of lime juice.  Below is a guide I use when I need fresh juice for a recipe.

1 medium lime yields approximately 2 tablespoons juice.

1 lemon yields approximately 3 tablespoons juice.

1 medium orange yields approximately 1/4 cup juice.

1 medium grapefruit yields approximately 2/3 cup juice.

On Friday, I will post my 
Slow Cooker Hawaiian BBQ Beef Sandwich recipe.
