3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 pounds tuna steaks (about 2 [8-ounce] steaks)
Freshly ground pepper
Cooking spray
10 small red potatoes (about 1 pound)
1/2 pound green beans, trimmed
4 cups torn romaine lettuce
4 cups trimmed watercress (about 1 bunch)
3 medium tomatoes, each cut into 6 wedges
3 hard-cooked large eggs, quartered lengthwise
1 small green bell pepper, cut into strips
1/2 cup niçoise olives
2 tablespoons capers
6 canned anchovy fillets


Drizzle lemon juice over tuna; sprinkle with pepper. Marinate in refrigerator 15 minutes; discard lemon juice. Prepare grill or broiler; place tuna on grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray; cook 4 minutes on each side or until medium-well. Break tuna into chunks; set aside.

Steam potatoes, covered, 3 minutes. Add green beans, and steam, covered, an additional 8 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender; cool.

Combine lettuce and watercress on a large serving platter. Arrange tuna, potatoes, green beans, tomatoes, eggs, and bell pepper over greens. Top with olives, capers, and anchovy fillets. Drizzle Garlic-Basil Vinaigrette over salad.
