Recipe by Allea

When I was in Turkey, this was served on the side along with Cacik when kebabs were ordered. I found this recipe in "Mediterranean Street Food" by Anissa Helou and adjusted it to how I remember eating it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soak the onions in hot water for about 5 minutes. This will soften them slightly and help take out the sharpness of the onion.
  2. Drain and spread out on a paper towel. Blot dry.
  3. Put onions in a bowl and add sumac, lemon juice, and olive oil. Mix and serve.
  4. Ingredients should be adjusted to taste perhaps adding black pepper. I happen to like a lot of lemon juice and sumac.
