Simple Amish Supper Salad

My Amish vegetable co-op shipments began some weeks ago. I have to say, the produce doesn't seem to last very long in the crisper drawer--is this a known side effect of organic produce, shorter shelf life?

Above you see tonight's dinner composed of as much Amish stuff as I can cram in and a few odds and ends. Here's the list:

Amish Stuff:
Romaine Lettuce
Leaf Lettuce
Strawberries (sweetened w/a little Splenda)

On Hand:
A few cashews
Handful of frozen grilled chicken (microwaved)

1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 envelope Splenda
1 dot spicy brown mustard
(Whisk together; pour over salad. Also? Season each individual salad ingredient as if you were going to eat it alone--including the greens. Makes for a much tastier salad.)

Delicious, I must say. I'd rather have had pecans than cashews, and in addition, a nice ripe avocado and some chopped cilantro (okay, and a little feta cheese). But for just a random Wednesday? It was pretty darn delicious.
