1/3 cup plain low-fat yogurt
2 tablespoons fat-free mayonnaise
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons cider vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 (6-ounce) package fresh baby spinach
1 yellow bell pepper, seeded, sliced, and cut into 1-inch pieces
1/3 medium red onion, thinly sliced and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 ripe diced peeled avocado


1. In a small bowl, whisk together the first 8 ingredients (through Worcestershire sauce). Refrigerate dressing until ready to serve. (The dressing can be made up to 2 days ahead.)

2. When you're ready to serve the salad, place the spinach in a large salad bowl. Top with the bell pepper, onion, and avocado pieces. Drizzle the dressing over the salad, and toss together gently to combine.
