We love a big, entrée-style salad this time of year—and this one delivers! Crunchy lettuce and green beans add satisfying texture, olives and capers pack a flavorful punch, and hearty baby potatoes and jackfruit (like our Lightly Seasoned Jackfruit) make it a meal. What more could you want?
Don’t forget dessert! This easy recipe for tropical chia pudding gets its creaminess from coconut milk and its just-sweet-enough flavor from Ripe Jackfruit, brown sugar, and vanilla. Best of all, it can be made well ahead of time and kept in the fridge for when cravings strike.
