    Lainey6605's Note:

    This dressing is from Cook's Country. The pepper is slowly simmered in oil to mellow its harshness, and when added to the dressing, each spoonful tastes deeply of pepper. If you don't have buttermilk, substitute 2 T milk and increase the vinegar to 2 1/2 t. Hearty, crispy iceberg and romaine work well with this creamy dressing.

      Wow, when this recipe says 'tastes deeply of pepper' it ain't kidding! We both love peppercorn ranch dressing, so we thought homemade would be great. We made a 1/2 cup of dressing using freshly ground peppercorns. Also, the dressing was a bit too thin for our tastes. Overall, we liked this recipe, but we would have to cut way down on the pepper next time. For a final note, this recipe has a unique way of fusing pepper with oil.
