|4oz (110g) cooked French beans or sliced runner beans|

Put the eggs in a saucepan, cover them with cold water, bring them up to a gentle simmer and cook gently for exactly 7 minutes. Then cool them rapidly under cold running water until they're quite cold. Now take the shells off and chop the eggs roughly, seasoning them with a little salt and pepper. Then slice the potatoes into rounds and cut the beans into 1 inch (2.5cm) lengths. Now take a large bowl, carefully mix the chopped eggs, beans and potatoes together, and pour in nearly all the vinaigrette dressing, keeping a little for later. Stir again, to get everything coated with the dressing, then cover the mixture and chill it until needed. To serve the salad, arrange the lettuce leaves in a salad bowl and sprinkle them with the reserved dressing; then arrange the potato mixture over the lettuce, make a criss-cross pattern with the anchovies and finally sprinkle on the black olives.
