In a 4- to 5-quart pan, bring 3 inches of water to a boil over high heat.
Add beans; cook, uncovered, until barely tender when pierced, 2 to 3 minutes.
Drain beans well, then immediately immerse in cold water until cool; drain again.
Mix beans with oil.
On each of 8 salad plates, lay a section of lettuce and a cluster of beans.
Sprinkle lettuce evenly with tangerine juice.
Spoon 1/8 of the Tangerine Mayonnaise at base of each cluster of beans; garnish mayonnaise with bell pepper strips.
Offer tangerine wedges to squeeze onto salads.
