WALLY'S CHOPPED SALAD
from "New York Cookbook" by Molly O'Neill

This salad is said to have originated at the Palm restaurant, where it's called the Monday Night Salad. About 20 years ago, when one of the owners of Palm opened Wally's, now Wally's and Joseph's, in the theater district, he brought with him most of the Palm's dishes, including this one, which, by the way, is now part of the standard New York steakhouse menu.

PREPARATION

1. Drain the chopped tomato in a colander, pressing down with a wooden spoon to squeeze out any excess water.
2. In a large bowl, combine the chopped lettuce, cucumber, celery, onion, pimientos, capers, olives, and anchovies. Add the drained tomatoes. Using a sharp knife, give the mixture an extra chopping right in the bowl.
3. Add the oil and mix thoroughly. Add the salt to taste, then the vinegar. Taste again. The salad should have a fairly lively flavor at this point. If not, carefully add a little more salt and season with the pepper.
