When I'm trying to stay away from those heavy and filling cheeses like mozzarella or cheddar, my go-to is ricotta. Its light and creamy texture is easy to cook with, especially when you are short on time. This bruschetta recipe is a great appetizer to serve on Shavuot, as the prep and cook time in total is 15 minutes and will give you more time to focus on your main dishes. The honey gives your appetizer an element of sweetness that pairs well with the citrus tomatoes and ricotta cheese. Enjoy your dairy filled holiday.
