Meanwhile, add the potato to a pan of boiling water and bring back to the boil. Simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes adding the green beans for the final 5 minutes. Drain and cool under cold running water. Tear the lettuce leaves into pieces and place in a salad bowl. Add the potato, green beans, tomatoes, basil and olives. Toss to mix.
