In a large mixing bowl, put the tuna. Flake apart with a fork. Add the salt, pepper, mayonnaise and pesto and blend well working it into the meat

Put half of the of the tuna mixture in the bottom of the casserole dish. Start topping with 'layers' of the celery, onions, fresh greens and bell pepper

Drizzle on the olive oil. Finally, add the rest of the tuna as the next layer.

Scatter on top the olives, capers, parsley and green onions on top. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate about 2 hours.
