From EatingWell:  May/June 1996

This isn't any ordinary picnic pasta salad. Coffee and molasses add rich notes to the tangy dressing.

6 servings, 1 1/3 cup each | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Place sun-dried tomatoes in a small bowl, cover with boiling water and let stand until soft, about 10 minutes. Drain and let cool. Cut into slivers and set aside.
  2. Cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling salted water until al dente, about 5 minutes; add chard during the last minute of cooking. Drain in a colander and rinse under cold water until cool. Press to remove excess water and transfer to a large bowl. Add turkey, black-eyed peas, onions and the reserved tomatoes.
  3. Whisk together the remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Add to the pasta and chard; toss until well-combined.
