    Season with salt & pepper. Roast in an oven at 350F, 4-6 minutes. Cook medium to medium/well done.

    Assemble the Salad:

    Toss the chopped Romaine hearts with enough red wine vinaigrette to moisten. Place equal amounts of salad onto two plates. Place equal amounts of the blistered pear tomatoes on each salad. Place one sliced hard-boiled egg on each salad. Place equal amounts of the al denté green beans over each salad. Flake two roasted Albacore Tuna Steaks over each salad. Sprinkle equal amounts of Kalamata olives on each salad.
