Thai Jackfruit Salad
Fresh, healthy, and flavoursome, this Thai Jackfruit Salad is a summer staple.
In this recipe, Healthy Luxe has cooked our Original Tender Jack (the Teriyaki flavour could also work well) in tasty combination of shallots, garlic, ginger, tamari and more. This vegan meat alternative is super versatile, making it an easy add-in to bulk up any savoury dish.
Made from young jackfruit hand-harvested in Sri Lanka, it’s Certified Crganic, packed with dietary fibre and contains zero artificial ingredients. For the salad base, she’s you’ll need cabbage, grated carrot, capsicum, bean sprouts, and a generous handful of fresh coriander and mint.
And for a finishing garnish and a little extra crunch, there’s the tamari toasted cashews. Cook and then cool your jackfruit mixture before adding it to your salad ingredients, then add your tamari cashews and a squeeze of lime. Simple, quick and delicious.
