1 large purple onion
2 large white onions
1/2 bunch Green onions
1 tbsp. celery seeds
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 cup vinegar
1 cup water

1 cup Kraft 3 cheese Ranch Dressing
1 Tbsp. celery seeds
salt & pepper to taste

Slice purple and white onions into 1/8" onion rings, separate and put in a crock container or large glass bowl.

Bring sugar, water & vinegar to a boil. Pour boiling mixture over onions. Mix lightly, cover and let set
overnight refrigerated.

To serve:
Drain the liquid off the onions. Chop green onions into 1/2" pieces. Add to purple and white onions. Add celery seed and pour 3 cheese dressing over onions. Serve cold.

Note: I usually add a little of the 3 cheese dressing at a time, mix and then determine if I want more dressing.
I usually do not use the full cup of dressing but that is my personal preference.
