Bring a pan of water to the boil for the green beans. Halve the larger potato cubes and then boil all of them in salted water, unpeeled, for approx. 20 min. until cooked.
Drain, then rinse under the cold tap and place in a shallow dish to cool. 
In the meantime, slice the green beans diagonally (into long diamond shapes) of approx. 4 cm in length.
When the water is boiling, add the beans. Add salt to taste and boil them for approx. 7 min. until just cooked. Rinse them under the cold tap to cool.
Cut the onion into rings and the tomato into wedges. Slice the eggs in half lengthways.
Drain the olives, tuna and anchovies, then arrange together with the green beans on top of the potato cubes.
Squeeze the lemon. Crush the garlic above the olive oil, add the mustard and season to taste with salt and pepper and lemon juice.
Drizzle the dressing over the salad.
