Help me replicate this salad I had in Spain

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...
