Mix together the red pepper strips, oregano, olives, olive oil, salt and pepper in a small bowl and reserve.
For the salad, tear the spinach leaves into bite-sized pieces. Place in a large bowl with the cabbage, tomatoes, red onion, jicama and cucumbers and toss well. Top with dressing and serve.
For the dressing, combine the lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic in a blender and puree until smooth. Add the yogurt and blend briefly to combine.
To serve, pour the yogurt dressing over the salad and toss to coat evenly. Divide and place on 6 serving plates. Top each with a large spoonful of the red pepper garnish.
