Mustard Vinaigrette: In large bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, lemon juice, mustard, shallot, thyme, salt, pepper and sugar; set aside.

Place salmon in centre of large piece of parchment paper. Sprinkle with salt and pepper; top with capers, lemon and thyme. Fold paper to edge; double-fold all edges and pinch to seal packet. Roast on baking sheet in 450°F (230°C) oven until fish flakes easily when tested, 10 to 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in saucepan of boiling salted water, cook potatoes until almost fork-tender, about 8 minutes.

Add beans; cook until tender, about 2 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water; pat dry. Add to vinaigrette along with tomatoes; toss to coat.

Arrange lettuce on plates. Top with potato mixture, eggs and salmon; drizzle with any remaining vinaigrette.
