For the salad:


  • Boil the potato slices for 10 minutes, or until tender but firm.
  • Drain and set aside.
  • Make the vinaigrette by whisking together the lemon juice, salt, pepper, and dry mustard.
  • Add the olive oil in a thin stream, whisking constantly.
  • Add about 1/3 of the vinaigrette, the scallions, and the parsley to the potatoes, tossing to coat them completely, and chill in the refrigerator for at least half an hour.
  • Combine another 1/3 of the vinaigrette with the tuna, tossing gently so as to leave rather large chunks of meat.
  • Line a large salad bowl with the lettuce leaves and place the potatoes on the bottom of the bowl.
  • Arrange the tomato wedges, egg quarters, tuna chunks, olives, anchovies, and green beans in an attractive pattern.
  • The dish may be prepared several hours in advance up to this point and refrigerated.
  • Spoon the remaining vinaigrette over the salad just before serving and sprinkle the parsley on top.
  • Serve with warm French bread.


Soak the anchovies in cold water for 10 minutes then drain and dry on paper towel.
