Creamy Peppercorn Dressing

“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.”
