1 tablespoon sliced green onions

1 tablespoon ground tricolor peppercorns

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1/2 teaspoon white vinegar

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Dash hot sauce

1 clove garlic, minced

1/4 to 1/2 cup buttermilk (as needed for desired consistency)

Wedge Salad:

2 heads iceberg lettuce, cut into wedges

3 pounds carrots, shredded

Crushed tricolor peppercorns, for garnish

  1. For the parmesan-peppercorn ranch: Put the mayonnaise, sour cream, Parmesan, parsley, green onions, peppercorns, Worcestershire, vinegar, salt, hot sauce and garlic in a blender or food processor and blend to combine. Add the buttermilk to the desired consistency and blend thoroughly. Chill for 30 minutes to a couple of hours before serving, thinning with more buttermilk if needed.
