Step 1. Marinate the jackfruit.
Take a bowl, put your defrosted jackfruit chunks in it and roll up your sleeves. Add olive oil and a generous amount of salt and pepper and massage it into your chunks. Spread marinated chunks over an oven tray covered with parchment paper and let them rest a bit while you preheat your oven to 180 °C. When the oven is ready, roast the jackfruit for about 20-25 minutes. Once done, let them cool off and use your hands to pull the chunks till you get your preferable structure.
Step 2. Make the dressing.
Mix olive oil, balsamic vinegar, mustard, honey, and add a pinch of salt. Small bowl and a spoon will do. For that special chef feeling, use a whisk. And if you need a reason to get your cocktail shaker out of the closet, it might not increase the taste, but it sure has a feel-good effect.
Step 3. Make the salad.
Wash all green leaf salad ingredients and mix them all together in a big bowl. Add cherry tomatoes, cucumber, olives and the parsley to the salad. This was the easiest part, wasn't it?
Step 4. And now for the grand finale. Add the dressing to your salad and stir well. Time to place the cold marinated jackfruit on top. Stir one more time gently. Sprinkle with some extra parsley for the finishing touch.
