Equipment

  • mixing bowl
  • wooden spoon

Ingredients

  • 1 14 oz [440 g] can of young jackfruit (we order it on Amazon.com)
  • 1 stalk of celery finely chopped
  • 1 small red onion ¼ cup 38 g, finely chopped
  • 1 heaping tbsp. 3 g fresh chopped parsley leaves
  • 3 tablespoon 47 g Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoon 30 g unsweetened plain plant-based yogurt (I used Kite Hill almond)
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • Ground sea salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Drain and rinse the jackfruit and pulse in a food processor until it’s shredded and resembles canned tuna. If you don’t have a food processor you can chop it with a knife.
  • Put the jackfruit in a medium mixing bowl and add the celery, onion, parsley mustard, yogurt, paprika, and salt and pepper and stir until it’s fully combined.
  • Serve as is or as a sandwich.

Notes

If you prefer your salad with mayonnaise you can add 3 tbsp (45 g) of vegan mayo and 1 tbsp (15 g) of Dijon mustard.
