Romaine Salad with Tuna, Tomatoes, and Olives

My Niçoise-inspired salad skips some of the traditional time-intensive ingredients, but oil-packed tuna, capers and olives still give it plenty of South of France flavor.

Bonus: You can make these dishes almost entirely ahead of time, so you'll be cool and relaxed when your doorbell rings—and ready to give guests a warm welcome.
