Directions

  1. Cook the rotini by following the package directions for al dente; drain and rinse briefly under cold running water; drain completely.
  2. To make the dressing: whisk together the vinegar, sun-dried tomatoes, salt and pepper to taste in a small bowl.
  3. Gradually whisk in the olive oil until an emulsion forms.
  4. Add in basil and stir to mix.
  5. To make the salad: Transfer drained pasta to a serving bowl; add in the salmon, olives, capers, bell pepper, artichoke hearts, peas, and corn; toss gently to combine.
  6. Pour the vinaigrette over the mixture and toss gently to coat.
  7. Sprinkle the sunflower seeds over the salad (also sprinkle a little feta cheese if desired--very good).
  8. Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 hours before serving.
  9. Serve chilled.
