You've got a good point there, tacchino...
I may never look at thousand island dressing the same way again!
Actually, that is one answer I just can't expain..
all I know is I used to like the mustard on the pastrami in past years, but not so much lately..
I like mustard mostly just on hot dogs now.
I tend to be a bit of a purist myself, as I like to have the first bunch of bites in it's "pure" state, before I put all that gook on it (cole slaw,etc)
Same with hot dogs; I like to taste the meat!!
I'm not Kosher, so I don't personally have an issue with that swiss cheese... (although I won't have straight milk with meat, I WILL have a milkshake!)
