Ingredients

1 c

2 Tbsp
extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp
garlic powder
1 Tbsp
dijon mustard
1/4 c

1/4 lb
smoked salmon, broken into small pieces
1 small
head romaine lettuce
salt and pepper, to taste

Step-By-Step

1In a large saucepan of boiling water (add a drizzle of olive oil to keep pasta from sticking), cook pasta until 1 minute short of al dente. Add sun-dried tomatoes and cook until tender and pasta is al dente, 1 minute more. Drain pasta and tomatoes, rinse under cold water and drain again; transfer to a large bowl.
2Make dressing: In a large bowl whisk together vinegar, oil, mustard, cilantro, garlic powder and 1 tbsp. water; season with salt and pepper.
3Add beans, artichoke hearts, and salmon to pasta and tomatoes. Add dressing. Tear romaine lettuce into separate bowls and top with pasta mixture. Sprinkle with feta cheese; serve immediately.
4NOTE: Great served with a loaf of sourdough bread and some iced tea.
