  1. Prepare the Russian dressing.  Grate the pickle and peel and grate the horseradish.  Put them in a bowl, with the remaining ingredients for the dressing, mix and set aside.
  2. Spread 1/2 Tbsp of butter or ghee on each bread slice.  Turn the slices over and spread half of the Russian dressing on the other side.
  3. Over two slices, spread half of the cheese, half of the sauerkraut, and all of the pastrami.  Spread the remaining Russian dressing over the pastrami and top with the remaining sauerkraut and cheese.  Place the remaining slice of bread on top, with the buttered side up.

  6. When done, serve immediately.
