Crumble 1 cup of the blue cheese and set it aside as a garnish.
Set up a food processor and, with the motor running, drop the scallions through the feed tube. After 10 seconds, shut off the machine and scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the remaining chopped blue cheese and pulse a few times to chop it further. Stop the motor and add the mayonnaise, vinegar, and 2 tsp. black pepper. With the motor running, add the buttermilk. Check the texture; if it is too thick, add more buttermilk to produce a thick and creamy, but pourable, dressing. (The dressing may be prepared up to 3 days ahead; store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.)
To assemble the salad, lay the iceberg wedges cut side up on 8 salad plates. Spoon about 1/4 cup of the dressing over each, then sprinkle each with some of the reserved blue cheese and a few grinds of black pepper. Leftover dressing will keep for 1 week in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

This dressing is excellent. And. So easy to make. I used Stilton and drizzled it over iceberg with bacon and tomatoes the first night and then served it with buffalo wings the second night.
One of my favorite dressings. Love the crunch of the iceberg lettuce in this salad.
Absolutely delicious. I’ll never buy blue cheese dressing (or dip) again.
Very simple to make and the family enjoyed. I drizzled balsamic vinegar over wedges and added some red onion slices. I thought the dressing was very good. Will make again.
