Shavuot Menu Ideas (Blintzes, Cheesecake, Ziti – Oh My!)

June is a tricky time for a holiday like Shavuot. On one hand, I love having an excuse to make dairy-centric meals. But on the other hand, I don’t want to eat heavy, cheese-laden food this time of year. As we approach Shavuot I have put together some of recipe ideas that include some lighter fair perfect for outdoor eating and warmer weather. Hope this inspires you! Tell us what you’re making below, and submit any questions if you’re looking for input or advice.
