Well coated with a tangy sour cream and celery seed dressing, these sweet-sour onions can sure dress up a juicy burger. My sister likes to serve them as a side salad when our family gets together in summer up at the lakes. -Ethel Lowey, Fort Frances, Ontario

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 1, 2013

I LOVE this recipe! I was flippinig through the taste of home magazine several years ago, and came upon this recipe. I tried it, and WOW!!! It has since become one of my favorite all time recipes! Put these onions on a burger and you'll be in love too, I promise!

MY REVIEW

I make this recipe but add sliced cucumbers also. I was searching for a recipe for creamy cucumbers after my husband ate some at a picnic he liked and stumbled along this recipe. So I tried it and he loved it! Never lasts long!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 2, 2011

I make this recipe frequently for picnics - my best suggestion is to lay the onions in a shallow pan in the fridge so you don't have to worry about the top ones not getting "marinated" enough. These are usually gone but do keep nicely for a few days in the fridge. Yummmmmmm
