Turkish Sumac Onions

2 large onions
1 teaspoon sumac
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional
¼ cup parsley, chopped
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon pomegranate molasses
2 tablespoon olive oil
Peel and slice the onions thinly. Put them in a bowl.
Sprinkle sumac, salt and red pepper flakes over onions. Gently massage them with your hand.
Add in parsley, lemon juice, pomegranate molasses and olive oil. Stir to combine.
Serve as a condiment alongside chicken or meat dishes, as a garnish in sandwiches or wraps.
If the onions you use are bitter, sprinkle a little salt over the thin slices and soak them in cold water for 1-2 minutes. Gently squeeze them and drain. This step will remove the bitterness.
