4 small red potatoes (about 1/2 pound)

1/3 pound fresh green beans, trimmed

12-ounce can light tuna packed in water, drained

1/2 cup chopped pitted Greek or Spanish olives

1/4 cup diced red onion

2 large tomatoes, seeded and diced (about 2 cups)

5 cups chopped romaine lettuce

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Salt and pepper


  1. Boil water in a large pot with a fitted steamer basket. Put the potatoes in the steamer, cover and steam for 15 minutes. Add the green beans and steam for 6 minutes more. Put the cooked potatoes and beans in a dish and set in the refrigerator to cool, or plunge into a bowl of ice water to cool quickly.
  2. Put tuna, olives, onion, tomato and lettuce in a large bowl. Dice the potatoes and green beans, add them to the bowl and toss.
  3. In a small bowl whisk together the oil, lemon juice, mustard, salt and pepper. Pour the dressing over the salad, toss well and serve.
