    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Really the amounts are only a guideline, you may use as much as desired, my family loves them piled high, amounts are for one sandwich --- if desired you could toast 2 slices of bread and make it into a sandwich, use the largest slice of pumpernickle for this! --- see my Kittencal's Thousand Island Dressing
