7. olive oil
8. Salt, red pepper to taste

Finely chop the green olives, onions, garlic and parsley.

Since pomegranate concentrate is used as a souring agent, if you have trouble finding it you can try substituting with lemon juice. They taste very different but can do the job. One makes the pomegranate concentrate by boiling the pomegranate juice down. Beware of the “fake” concentrates that you might find in the stores.
