Found this in a website about Austrian food - this is pretty much how my German mom always made it. If you can find sour pickles in a European specialty store, all the better! NOTE: tuna comes in smaller cans than it used to, so adjust proportion of other ingredients accordingly. I use water pack tuna, but oil pack will give you a richer flavor.
