Drain and discard the oil from the tuna.
Put the tuna into a strainer, and "rinse" the fish with red wine vinegar.
In a small skillet, heat the oil and stir-fry the red pepper for 3 minutes, or until barely cooked and still crisp.
Remove the skillet from the heat; add the capers and 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar.
Allow the peppers to cool to room temperature.
Wash and shake or spin-dry the lettuce.
Arrange a bed of bite-size pieces of lettuce on 4 salad plates.
Divide the tuna among the plates.
Spoon on the red pepper dressing.
Top with the nuts.
