What Can I Do With Homemade Japanese Sesame Sauce?

Good Questions

Q: Someone gave us a jar of homemade Japanese sesame sauce for Christmas.

I've never cooked with it before. Any recipe ideas other than using it as a salad dressing?

Editor: I'Ching, this reminds us of this recipe for spinach crowns with sesame sauce:

You could also use it with noodles; toss cooked soba or udon with quickly-cooked vegetables and the sesame dressing.

Readers, how would you use this sauce?
