0 1/4 cup  shallots, chopped
0.3333 cup  low sodium chicken broth
2 tbsp  olive oil
2 tbsp  fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp  white wine vinegar
1 tsp  dijon mustard
1 tbsp  fresh basil
1 tbsp  oregano leaves
0 1/4 tsp  salt
0 1/4 tsp  black pepper
0 1/4 tsp  hot pepper sauce
0.125 tsp  hot red pepper flakes

6 oz  fresh green beans
8 oz  red skinned potatoes
1 each  canned white tuna, packed in water, drained
0 1/2 each  red onion
1 each  small cucumber, peeled
1 pint  fresh cherry tomatoes
4 oz  pitted calamata olives
1 each  head Boston lettuce
2 each  large hard-boiled eggs
  1. To prepare dressing: Mix the shallots, broth, oil, lemon juice, vinegar, mustard, basil, oregano, salt, black pepper, hot pepper sauce, and red pepper flakes in a 2-cup jar or bowl. Cover and shake or whisk (if using a bowl) until well mixed. Refrigerate until the salad is ready.
  2. Bring two pots of water to a boil. In one, cook the green beans until crisp-tender, (5 minutes). In the other, cook the potatoes, covered, until tender, approximately 8-10 minutes. Drain the beans and potatoes and run under cold water until cooled. Transfer to a large bowl.
  3. Add the tuna, onion, cucumber, tomatoes, and olives to the bowl. Drizzle the dressing evenly over the salad. Using your hands, gently toss the salad to coat. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  4. Before serving, bring to room temperature and serve over lettuce leaves garnished with the egg quarters.
