3. Meanwhile, place the eggs in a small saucepan of cold water. Bring to the boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and gently boil, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 7 minutes. Drain and cool under cold running water, peel and quarter. Whisk together the oil, vinegar, mustard, basil and sugar in a jug until combined. Season with salt and pepper.
4. Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the tuna and cook for 2-3 minutes each side for medium or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate and set aside for 5 minutes to rest. Flake the tuna into large pieces.
5. Divide the potato, beans, egg, tuna, lettuce, tomato and olives evenly among serving bowls. Drizzle over the dressing. Season with salt and pepper to serve.
