  • In a medium bowl, cover the onions with the buttermilk and let stand for 10 minutes. In a shallow dish, generously season the flour with salt and pepper.

  • In a medium cast-iron skillet, heat 2 inches of vegetable oil to 350?. Drain the onions in a colander, then dredge them in the seasoned flour. Transfer the onions to a strainer and shake off the excess flour. Working in 3 to 4 batches, fry the onions in the hot oil until golden brown, about 2 minutes per batch. Using a wire skimmer, transfer the fried onions to paper towels to drain. Season with salt.

  • Arrange the iceberg wedges on 2 large platters. Top each wedge with a generous tablespoon of the dressing and crispy onions and serve immediately.
