Turkish Charred Onion Salad with Sumac and Parsley

© 2024 |

The salad is deliciously sharp, tangy and smokey and is also especially excellent with grilled fish, lahmacun or doner kebab and flat bread. You can make this completely raw with thinly sliced onions. Toss in some fresh tomatoes if desired.
Sumac, made from pulverized dried sumac berries, is a spice that is commonly used in many Middle Eastern countries. It tastes like fresh lemon juice and adds a bright red colour to a dish.

  • 2 Onions, quartered and peeled
  • 1-2 tbsp Pomegranate molasses
  • 1 tbsp Freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Sea salt
  • 15 g Flat parsley, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Sumac
  1. Heat a cast iron skillet until very hot on high. Place onion quarters, cut side down, into the pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes until they are beautifully charred. Turn and repeat with the other side.
  2. Remove the onions and pull the layers apart and place them in a bowl. Add in pomegrante molasses, lemon juice, a large pinch of sea salt and parsley. Gently toss everything together.
  3. Place them in a platter and sprinkle some sumac over. Serve with grilled meat, fish or Turkish pizza.

Looks easy-peasy with nice colours on the plate. I made just spring potato and eggs salad for lunch as it is over 40C here and I cannot handle living let alone cooking LOL

Una ensalada que no conozco, la veo más como guarnición, la cebolla así tostada me debe gustar mucho. La probaré.

I don’t think I have ever used Sumac, but if the dish has charred onions count me in!

Wow, the color on your onions is absolutely perfect. The char is a whole other ingredients as far as I'm concerned. And your additional ingredients only make the onions shine more. :-) ~Valentina
