  • 4 4-ounce tuna steaks
  • Oil for grilling
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 cups Boston Bibb lettuce (about 2 small heads) torn into pieces
  • 1 recipe Lemon Aioli (recipe follows)
  • 1/2 pound red skin potatoes, quartered, cooked until tender and cooled
  • 1/2 pound green beans, snipped, cooked until tender, and cooled under cold water
  • 8 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 small red onion halved and sliced thin
  • 3 hard-boiled eggs
  • 1/2 cup Nicoise olives, for garnish


  • Preheat the grill. Oil and season the tuna. Grill the tuna for 1-2 minutes on each side. Toss the lettuce with 1/4 cup of Aioli dressing and season with salt and pepper.
