Southern Pasta Salad with Black-Eyed Peas Recipe at
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.

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.

Whisk together the remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Add to the pasta and chard; toss until well-combined.

Perfect lunch box item
It's Southern so if pasta salad is worth doing it's worth overdoing! However this is a good balance of flavor and health. This will be fun taking to a picnic or potluck and have people guess the ingredients.
