Mix together the tuna and the mayonnaise. Divide the causa mixture into three portions. Spread one of the portions in a shallow dish. Cover with half the tuna mixture. Make a second layer of the causa and cover with the remaining tuna. Arrange the egg, avocado slices, pepper and olives on the tuna layer. Cover with the remaining causa. Leave for at least an hour in a cold place. Turn out, surround by salad leaves if liked, and serve.
