How do you put a Jewish twist on a Fourth of July barbecue? Take summer staples — burgers, watermelon, even a red-white-and blue frozen dessert — and add an Israeli accent. Instead of the usual hamburger, there’s a spiced lamb burger with garlicky mint pesto. Watermelon comes in the form of a cool sweet-and-salty salad, a nondairy take on the ubiquitous feta-and-mint version.
