Step 1Preparation Gently lower eggs into a medium saucepan of boiling salted water and cook 6 1/2 minutes. Transfer eggs to a bowl of ice water with a slotted spoon and let cool until just warm. Peel and set aside.Step 2Meanwhile, whisk sugar, turmeric, 1/2 cup vinegar, 1 tsp. salt, and 1/2 cup water in a medium bowl. Add vegetables and sweet onion and let sit until slightly softened and pickled; ideally you want these to sit at least 1 hour, but if you are short on time, 10 minutes and massaging gently to soften a bit will get the job done.Step 3Place feta in a small bowl and drizzle with 1/4 cup oil and remaining 2 Tbsp. vinegar. Let sit at least 5 minutes.Step 4Drizzle toast with oil and tear into large pieces. Place in a large bowl with lettuce. Drain pickled vegetables and add to bowl. Drizzle marinating liquid from feta over, season with salt, and toss well.Step 5Cut eggs into quarters. Divide salad among plates; top with eggs and marinated feta and sprinkle with sumac.Step 6Do Ahead Eggs can be made and vegetables can be pickled 4 days ahead; cover and chill.
