Directions Step-By-Step

1
Line a large platter with outside lettuce leaves. Place 3 cups of the potato salad in a mound in the center of the platter. Cover with remaining lettuce which has been shredded. Arrange the watercress (if using) on top of the lettuce.
2
Place the tomato wedges around the outer edge of the salad with a few on the top and place the cucumber in between the tomatoes, making a solid base of the salad. Place the avocado slices around the outside.
3
Place crumbled feta on top of the salad, with the green pepper slices over all. On the very top, place the sliced beets (if using) with a shrimp on each beet slice and an anchovy fillet on top of the shrimp.
4
The entire salad is then sprinkled with the vinegar and then with the oil. Sprinkle oregano over all and serve at once. Serve with toasted garlic bread.
