When ready to serve, arrange beef on lettuce leaves in center of large platter. Arrange grapefruit sections, avocado slices, cheese and olives attractively around beef. Serve remaining 3/4 cup dressing on the side.

*Note: Cooked pot roast is good for this recipe. Wrap and place in freezer 30 minutes to make shredding easier. Cut in very thin strips with a sharp knife, or use cutting blade of food processor.
