Fruit Salad and Celery Seed Dressing

This recipe is from a Richards Ward R.S. Christmas lunch a long time ago. It is always a hit when I make it and it is soooooo beautiful.
Fruit Salad and Dressing
Assemble salad with romaine and other lettuces as a bed on plate. Place grapefruit slices, mandarin oranges, avocado slices, and pomegranate seeds on lettuce. Top with dressing. I also make a tossed salad with these ingredients and let each person put their own dressing on.
10T sugar
1 t salt
1 t dry mustard
1 t paprika
1/3 c apple cider vinegar (go easy, not quite full)
1 T celery seed (If I don't have celery seed, I use poppy seed.)
1 c oil
In blender, put vinegar, sugar, salt, mustard, paprika, and celery or poppy seeds. Mix together. Add oil slowly on first speed of blender until all ingredients are combined. Run blender 45 seconds to 1 minute to thicken. To store, drop 1/4 of an onion in bottle while in refrigerator. Don't serve with onion. Dressing is also good on cole slaw.
PS Most of the time I forget to store the dressing with the onion and it is still delicious!
