I found this recipe in the newspaper 30 years ago. It was so unusual that I had to try it. I've been making it ever since. Don't skip the butter on the buns!

Great tuna salad recipe! I had to try this because of the sauerkraut, made as written and had a taste. As written it was good, but I like my tuna salad on the sweet side with pickle relish. I added about 1/3-1/2 cup of sweet pickle relish, and WOW! Used small red and yellow peppers because that's what I had, didn't want to wait until I went to the market. Even with that much pickle relish it wasn't too sweet, the sour sauerkraut and sweetness of the relish compliment each other very well. I did use the extra tuna, my cans were only 5 ounces each so I used three cans. Buttering the bread/bun does add an exta richness to the sandwich.
