1/4 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
1 tbsp. chopped fresh chives

1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

1/2 tsp. black pepper
dash hot sauce, optional
2 heads iceberg lettuce

Directions Step-By-Step

Sprinkle salt over the garlic.
With a fork, mash garlic and salt together to make a paste. The finer, the better as the garlic is very strong in the finished dressing
Add all the dressing ingredients to a bowl.
Stir together gently, adjusting seasonings as needed. Make ranch dressing to your own special tastes, adding more of what you like.
Chill the dressing for at least 2 hours before serving. Thin with milk if needed.
Wash and dry the iceberg lettuce and cut into wedges. Arrange wedges on platter and drizzle the ranch dressing over the top.
Be generous with the dressing, since it needs to reach all the lettuce in the wedge. Serves 8
