Mark's Madison Avenue Salad Recipe
Make the dressing (see below).
Combine all the vegetables in a large mixing bowl. Finely chop the salad greens and mix lightly into the vegetables. Add the lentils and beans, then crumble in the tuna. Drizzle with dressing to taste, and toss well until everything is mixed together. Divide among four or six plates and serve immediately.

Peel the garlic clove, smash it with a chef's knife and place in a stainless-steel bowl. Add the vinegar and set aside for 1 hour to let the flavors meld, then remove the garlic.
Add the olive oil and whisk together. Add the salt and pepper, mix again and then taste and adjust seasoning if needed.
