Help me replicate this salad I had in Spain

OP here, unfortunately this was nearly 6 months ago, so I can't remember if this salad had tuna or ham. I had a lot of both during the time I was there.

@Rubee That plate looks fantastic! Hard to buy jamon in Ottawa.

Hi everyone, thanks a lot for your help! I've never seen piquillo or guindilla peppers at the markets here in Ottawa, but now that I have a name the search might be easier. The white asparagus in jars I've definitely seen in food shops.

I ate this seemingly simple but extraordinarily delicious salad in a little cafe in Madrid. Unfortunately, I can't figure out what was in it or remember what they called it - oops.

Luckily, I took a picture (click on "all sizes" to get a larger view):

We can see:
* Strips of meat - ham?
* Hearts of palm
* Capers
* Tomatoes
* Lettuce - though I'm not sure what kinds are in there, there's definitely some sort of reddish/pinkish leafy plant

I'd love to identify the peppers as well, they look like hot chili peppers, but I don't remember the salad being very spicy, so I'm at a loss. A huge thanks in advance to anyone that knows what they are...
