Another recipe that allows me to use up my bottle of Kewpie Mayo faster.

Been using the same sesame dressing recipe for over a year, sometimes I add less vinegar, but most of the time I cut down on the sugar added.  I have also used other kind of sweeteners like raw honey to make a healthier version, and I found that date syrup works best.  I even omitted mirin altogether when I use date syrup.
