You should post the recipe for your cold plate, especially with the east getting blasted with high temps. Looks like a prefect meal for a HOT day!
The romaine lettuce was under the tuna salad, any lettuce would work. The original recipe just called for vinegar, I assume cider, I like the red wine. I personally wouldn't use balsamic. Any kind of beans would work, just different colors. I posted the Three Bean Salad Recipe here. PattY1's Three Bean Salad
The tuna salad should be made to your personal tastes. If I had any fore thought on this meal I would have hard boiled some eggs, served quartered.
