Fresh and Healthy Jackfruit Salsa | How to Make Refreshing Jackfruit Salad

How to Make Best and Refreshing Jackfruit Salsa

Hello Foodies,

       Try this tangy, sweet, and healthy salsa recipe as a snack or side. Jackfruit Salsa is a unique way to use jackfruit. You can top your tacos or tostadas with this jackfruit salsa along with your favorite beans or meat toppings. My current favorite is Jackfruit Salsa. Excellent on a shredded chicken taco, shrimp, or fish tacos, or just on salted tortilla chips too. The next day I added some black beans to the mixture and it helped balance the flavors. This is no onion-no garlic, vegan, and gluten-free salsa recipe.

This recipe is adapted from the mango salsa recipe I've shared. This is more of a pico de gallo than a smoother blended salsa. This Fresh Jackfruit Salsa gives a nice twist on your regular old chips and salsa. Jackfruit is sweet in taste and has a distinguishable and nice smell.
