From the Test Kitchen

This vibrant salad uses a rich, creamy sesame-honey dressing to bring together a crisp mix of cucumbers, bell pepper, spinach, and arugula. You'll top it off with slices of smooth avocado, plus a sprinkle of everything bagel seasoning, whose subtle aromatic flavor and crunchy seeds are an unexpectedly perfect fit.
