Finely chop the garlic and mash it together with the salt to make a paste. Scrape it into a medium bowl and add the onion, if using. Add the mayonnaise, buttermilk, parsley, chives and black pepper to taste. Whisk together to combine well.
Taste by dipping a Romaine leaf into the dressing. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper, if needed. Cover and refrigerate.
