My Shavuot Menu Lunch with Recipes

Shavuot menu can be tricky: It often errs on the dairy side!

Let me start by saying I have a huge Shavuot Menu on my blog! It includes lots of my favorite dairy recipe compositions.

This Yom Tov we are hosting just one meal, Shavuot lunch.
In this Shavuot menu, as with all other menus, Here is my recommendation: Play up the Trademark ingredient (here: Dairy), but don’t play it up so much that it becomes repetitive and tiresome, or worse, prohibitively rich. Have a heart, will you? So if, as in this Shavuot menu, you have dairy ingredients starring in pasta, salad and lemon cake, I recommend you balance the rest of your menu with some fish and other pareve dishes, and call it a day.

Here’s my Shavuot menu: A Banquet, I should call it!

All at Room Temperature. Except what needs to be served chilled (poached salmon, soup, lemonade) cold feasts
