Directions Step-By-Step

1
In 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.
2
Make dressing: In a large bowl whisk together vinegar, oil, mustard, cilantro, garlic powder and 1 tbsp. water; season with salt and pepper.
3
Add 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.

NOTE: Great served with a loaf of sourdough bread and some iced tea.
