I have always loved Shavuot because we get to eat some dairy Yom Tov meals, giving us a break from heavier meat-driven fare. I try to make my seudot special, fun, and interactive, too! I thought a taco bar would fit the bill on all these things. Your family and guests can make their own tacos according to individual preference. Fish tacos have become popular all over the country, and now are featured on the menu in many kosher restaurants. You can set up a buffet, or place it on Lazy Susans in the center of the table so you can spin around for the different choices. Inside your warmed corn tortilla (gluten free is always a bonus) you add in your fish, fried or grilled, then fill it with your favorite choices of fillings.

Pickled Red Onions are easy to make and last a long time in the fridge.
This Cabbage Slaw packs an unexpected tang with lemon juice and jalapeño.
Avocado Cream Sauce is the perfect condiment for a fish taco, or a great dip for nachos. With a hint of jalapeño, it adds a creamy tang to whatever you dip in it.
