Although I usually make my plant based “tuna” Vegan Chickpea Salad Stuffed Tomato with chickpeas, I opted for jackfruit today. For those of you who have not tried Jackfruit, it is a fruit grown on a tree. Check my Amazing Jackfruit Tuna Salad Recipe Below.
Despite being available in stores, the actual fruit size is quite large and difficult to navigate. Because of this, I buy my jackfruit in brine at Trader Joes. If you don’t have a Trader Joes, or an Asian market near you, try this link Jackfruit on AMAZON.
First, it is important to buy canned jackfruit in water or brine. Be careful not to buy the jackfruit in syrup! Also, Jackfruit can be purchased in packs in the refrigerator section, but these packets are generally flavored.
Once you have the canned jackfruit, the process of making the salad is fairly easy. I like to shred the jackfruit, so it has the texture of tuna. To do this, I use my Hamilton Beach Food Processor.
Then, I use my Skinny Cashew Garlic Lemon Aioli recipe for the “mayo.” Although you may choose any vegetables, I picked diced celery, green onions, and dill. Also, I served my jackfruit tuna on a spinach vegan wrap with romaine lettuce, tomato, and pickles.
Furthermore, the secret is in the seasoning. My preference is Old Bay Seasoning , but any creole type seasoning will work. I also used Roasted Seaweed in my salad. For this ingredient, you can also use Nori Sheets or Dulse Flaked Seaweed. Hope You Liked my Jackfruit Tuna Salad Recipe. Now its your turn to prepare this recipe.
