Method: 

In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, tarragon, mustard, shallot, salt and pepper. Slowly whisk in oil to make a vinaigrette. Put tuna into a wide, shallow dish, drizzle all over with 2 tablespoons of the vinaigrette, cover and chill for 30 minutes. Reserve remaining vinaigrette.



Oil grill grates and preheat to medium heat. Grill tuna until desired doneness, 5 to 7 minutes on each side; transfer tuna to a plate (discard marinade). When cool enough to handle, flake into large pieces. Arrange tuna, potatoes, green beans, tomatoes, olives, onion and egg on a large platter and serve with reserved vinaigrette on the side to spoon over the top.
