  • 1 large red onions
  • 2 T. Italian Parsley (chopped)
  • 2 T. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 T. red wine vinegar
  • 2 T. olive oil
  • 4 tsp. sumac
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • ½ tsp. sugar


  • Start by peeling and slicing the red onion. Add to a bowl, along with the chopped parsley.
  • Whisk lemon juice, vinegar, olive oil, sumac, salt, and sugar in a small bowl.
  • Pour the dressing over the onions and parsley, then mix thoroughly to combine.
  • Allow the flavors to come together for an hour or so before using it as a condiment with kofta kabob, chicken, in sandwiches, or mixed in salads!


  • If you don't have red onions, you can use yellow onions, but it might be a good idea to soak them in hot water for 5 to 10 minutes first to mellow out the flavor.
  • Sumac loses it's flavor if it's stored for any length of time. It's a good idea to keep sumac frozen until needed to retain its freshness. Especially if you don't use it too often.
  • If you want to spice things up a bit, you can add some chili flakes in with the marinated onions.
  • Sumac onions are good for up to a week or longer.
