Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 5 min.

Makes

1-1/3 cups

This makeover recipe is ideal for spinach. It's also a great way to dress up chicken salad or coleslaw. Yet it has less than half the calories and fat of the original dressing and about 40% less carbohydrates.—Cindy Harnish, Wexford, Pennsylvania

  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar

  • 4 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • Fresh spinach leaves
