Grilled Rare Tuna Salad with Basil-Tapenade Vinaigrette

[Photograph: Kerry Saretsky]

Another incarnation of my Salade Ni├žoise! It starts with a simply grilled tuna steak crusted in herbs de Provence, cooked rare, piled onto a bed of butter lettuce, and drizzled with a vinaigrette made from olive oil, fresh basil, white wine vinegar, and black olive tapenade. Fresh, light, and full of punchy, bright flavor.
