onion technique

Am reading a novel set in Turkey, early 19th century. The main character likes to cook and describes a few simple dishes he is making as the story, a mystery, progresses. Ok, so he's making a salad and before adding onion he salts it and after short time rinses it before chopping and adding. Never heard of doing this and curious to know what/why. I did a superficial google search and noticed this in a recipe or two from Australia but can't find an explanation. Any ideas?
