Salad Ingredients: 

  • 3 ounces French green beans
  • 4 small red potatoes or fingerling potatoes, cut in half
  • 1 head Boston lettuce
  • 1 medium tomato, sliced into bite size wedges
  • 1/2 green or red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 2 hard boiled eggs, peeled and sliced in half
  • 10 pitted kalamata olives
  • 6 anchovy fillets, rinsed and patted dry
  • 6 ounces high quality canned tuna in oil or water, drained



  1. Make the dressing by whisking all the ingredients in a bowl or salad dressing mixer. Set aside.
  2. Bring a medium size pot of salted water to boil and add the French green beans. Boil for 5-6 minutes, until the beans are soft but still yielding a nice crunch. Drain and plunge in cold water. Set aside
  3. Add the potatoes to a small pot filled with water. Bring to a boil and cook for 7-10 minutes, until the potatoes are soft. Drain and plunge in cold water. Set aside.
  4. Wash the Boston lettuce and dry the leaves. Roughly chop and divide the lettuce among two plates.
  5. Drain and dry the green beans and potatoes and put them in a large bowl along with the sliced tomatoes and bell peppers. Pour half of the vinaigrette and toss well to coat the vegetables.
  6. Divide the vegetables among the two plates and add the hard boiled eggs, anchovies, olives and tuna.
  7. Drizzle with the leftover vinaigrette and serve.
