  White onions 1 Kilogram
  Vegetable oil 60 Milliliter
  Bacon drippings 60 Milliliter
  Celery salt 1 Milliliter
  Fresh parsley 60 Milliliter
  Salt To Taste

Clean and remove skins from the small onions.
This is quickly done if you cover them with boiling water, let them stand 5 minutes, drain and peel, cutting first the top and very little of the bottom so the onions do not break when cooking.
Place the cleaned onions in a 4-cup (1 L) microwave-safe dish.
Pour the oil and the bacon drippings on top.
Cover and microwave at HIGH 6 to 8 minutes, stirring twice.
It is important that the onions remain a little crunchy.
Add the remaining ingredients, toss until well blended.
Serve hot or tepid.
