Shavuot Recipe Picks

And finally
blintzes3
we get to one of my favorite Jewish holidays to cook for: Shavuot. I love making dairy meals, and even more than the meal itself, I love making dairy dessert!

I like to balance the richness of dairy-heavy meals with light salads such as this Fennel Celery Salad or this Spinach Blueberry Salad with Goat Cheese.

Here are some of my favorite dairy-rific recipes to enjoy this Shavuot. My top pick: definitely the salted caramel ice cream – it’s so rich and creamy you can eat a small serving and feel satisfied. Then again, no harm in having a slightly larger serving either.
