According to Yotam Ottolenghi, everyone in Jerusalem eats chopped-vegetable salads with whatever else they’re having. This nontraditional salad is from the mother of his business partner, Sami Tamimi. Called Na’ama’s fattoush, it gets tossed with a tangy buttermilk dressing. Slideshow: Delicious Bread Salads
