Pass me the salad dressing and memories, please!

A friend (roots from Newport Beach) posted this on Facebook...'this' is a recipe for Coco's Parmesan Salad Dressing. Coco's is/was a casual restaurant in Newport Beach. And back in the day, everybody fell in love with their salad dressing.

Coco's Parmesan Salad Dressing
-1 c mayo
-3/4 c buttermilk (you can make this yourself by setting the milk out for 5-10 minutes. Then add 3/4 tbsp of lemon juice or white vinegar to the milk. Then let it set again for 5-10 minutes.)
1/2 c milk
1/2 c grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 c cider vinegar
2+ cloves garlic...crushed
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
3/4 c sour cream.
