Jackfruit-Cranberry Salad

Before WFPB/Vegan eating, I would make a Chicken-Cranberry Salad quite often. This is my WFPB Vegan version that is just as good.

The key to the jackfruit, is to rinse it really well and then roast it in the oven.

  • 2 cans of jackfruit, brined, rinsed, drained, shredded
  • All-Purpose Seasoning +ย more for seasoning
  • 1/2 c cranberries, dried
  • 1/2 c pecans, toasted, chopped
  • 1/4 c dried onion, minced
  • 2 tsp spice brown mustard
  • Vegan mayonnaise or Cashew Sour Cream
  • 1/2 c celery, diced (optional)
  • Himalayan salt to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.

Spread the shredded jackfruit onto the the prepared baking sheet. Generously sprinkle the All-Purpose Seasoning on the shredded jackfruit.

Roast jackfruit for 20 minutes; stirring the jackfruit after to minutes. Remove jackfruit from oven and transfer to a large bowl.

Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl of jackfruit and stir. Add as much vegan mayonnaise or Cashew Sour Cream as you need to achieve the desired creaminess. Taste for seasoning.

Chill Jackfruit-Cranberry Salad for at least an hour to let the flavors meld together.

Note: I have served this in lettuce cups, on gluten-free bread, in a salad with assorted greens. There are so many ways to serve this wonderful bite.

Serve. Eat. Enjoy.

  1. I’ve never tried using Jackfruit, so this will be a good place to start. Thanks for sharing. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hi Ronit Penso. Jackfruit is a wonder. A great replacement for chicken or pork. Thanks for stopping by Cathryn’s Kitchen.

      1. You got me interested. Will definitely check it out! ๐Ÿ™‚

      2. Hi Ronin Penso. I really hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Thanks for stopping by Cathryn’s Kitchen.

  2. I have some boxes of jackfruit. Can I use that? And if so, how much? I’d love to try this,

    1. Hi Catherine. I don’t see why you couldn’t use them. I would make sure they are not already flavored. It really depends on how much you want to make. I used 2 -14 oz cans and it made quite a bit, almost too much for 2 people. Thanks for stopping by Cathryn’s Kitchen.

  3. This looks so good!!! I love Jackfruit although still trying to get the husband on board with it

    1. Hi Pregnancy Pantry. Roasting the Jackfruit really does the trick. My omnivore husband loves it. It gives him the “meaty” texture he is looking for.

      1. Iโ€™ll try that, thanks so much for the tip ๐Ÿ‘
