Japanese-Style Wafu Dressing I

Japanese Restaurants all have their signature salad dressing. All quite similar, but yet different. A few local restaurants have now begun to bottle and sell their popular dressings.
Good served with cold tofu, cold noodle salads, mixed green salads, even as a dipping sauce for dumplings, teppan yaki. The uses are endless. You will want to make batches of this to share.
