Talking about Groceries in Spanish

Perhaps you want a slice of bread, with a slice of salami, and a slice of cheese. How about a slice of cake with a slice of pineapple on top? In English we use the word “slice” for many things, but in Spanish, there is an extensive range of vocabulary that is equivalent to “slice”.
