¾ cup vegan mayonnaise

1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard

2 Tbsp. Apple cider vinegar

½ tsp. Salt

¼ tsp. pepper



  1. Drain and rinse the jackfruit, then cut it into smaller pieces, removing the core.

Pour the dressing over the vegetables and toss the coleslaw until the dressing is well-distributed. Set aside.
  9. Remove the jackfruit from the oven, and pour the Bittersweet Herb Farm Smoked Maple Chipotle Finishing Sauce over the top Mix well.
  10. Return to the oven and bake for another 10 minutesuntil the edges are slightly crispy.
