In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, red wine vinegar, capers and a pinch of salt and pepper. (Or shake in a tightly sealed container, like a mason jar, until emulsified).
Add tuna to a medium size bowl. Pour half of the dressing over the tuna and mix together with a fork, breaking up the tuna. Set aside.
Bring a medium sized pot of water to boil (about halfway full). Scrub the potatoes clean, then add the whole potatoes to the boiling water. Boil for 8 minutes, then add the trimmed green beans to the pot. Continue to boil for an additional 4 minutes. Transfer to an ice bath for 5-10 minutes to cool.
Tear lettuce leaves, keeping the leaves whole. Rinse and dry completely. Set aside.
To assemble, layer the ingredients on the lettuce leaves (use a slotted spoon for the tuna). Drizzle on additional dressing and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
