Famous Greek Salad
What You Need:
  • 1 large head lettuce
  • 3 cups potato salad
  • 12 roka leaves (Greek vegetable) or 12 sprigs watercress
  • 2 tomatoes cut into 6 wedges each
  • 1 peeled cucumber, cut lengthwise into 8 fingers
  • 1 avocado, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 4 portions of Feta cheese
  • 1 green pepper, cut into 8 rings
  • 4 slices canned cook beets
  • 4 peeled, cooked shrimp
  • 4 anchovy fillets
  • 12 black olives (Greek-style preferred)
  • 12 medium hot Salonika peppers (bought in bottles)
  • 4 fancy-cut radishes
  • 4 whole green onions
  • ½ cup white vinegar
  • ¼ cup each of olive and salad oil blended
  • Oregano

  • How To Cook:
    1. Line a large platter with the outside lettuce leaves; place 3 cups of the potato salad in a mound in the center of the platter.

    2. Cover with the remaining lettuce, which has been shredded. Arrange the roka or watercress on top of this.

    3. Place the tomato wedges around the outer edge of the salad with a few on top, and place the cucumber wedges in between the tomatoes, making a solid base of the salad.

    4. Place the avocado slices around the outside. Slices of Feta cheese should be arranged on the top of the salad, with the green pepper slices over all.

    5. On the very top, place the sliced beets with a shrimp on each beet slice and an anchovy fillet on the shrimp. The olives, peppers, radishes, and green onions can be arranged as desired.

    6. The entire salad is then sprinkled with the vinegar (more may be used) and then with the blended oil. Sprinkle the oregano over all and serve at once.

        Garlic-toasted Greek bread is served with this salad.
