A Vegan Chicken Salad everyone will love. This traditional salad is made with green jackfruit and mixed with celery, onions, and pickles for a healthy twist on a classic salad. Soy and gluten-free!
Drain and rinse the jackfruit through a colander. Shake out any excess water. Lay the jackfruit on a paper towel and pat dry. Using your fingers, press the jackfruit chunks and the base to fan out, pushing it into large shreds. See this video for a visual. Set aside.
Dice all your vegetables and herbs. Set aside.
Place the prepared jackfruit in a medium bowl. Add the remaining chicken salad ingredients and stir until well combined.
Serve on sandwich bread or a baguette with lettuce. Leftover chicken salad can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Serving and Storing - For best results, serve within 4 hours of making. Serve the salad on toasted bread, with crackers, or on a bed of lettuce. Store leftover salad in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
Variations - If you don't like jackfruit or can't find it, tempeh or smashed chickpeas make a great replacement.
