Whisk together the yogurt, mustard, zest, and salt in a large bowl.
Stir in the tuna, onion, parsley, and lemon juice.
Cover and refrigerate.
Bring the potatoes and enough cold salted water to cover to a boil in a medium saucepan.
Reduce the heat and simmer until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork, about 12 minutes.
Drain, transfer to the bowl with the tuna and stir to blend.
Cook the green beans in a medium saucepan of boiling salted water until bright green and crisp-tender, about 4 minutes.
Drain in a colander and add the beans to the bowl with the potatoes; stir just to combine.
Arrange the salad greens on 4 plates, top with the tuna mixture, and sprinkle with the olives.
