I hadn't heard of jackfruit until recently but now I can't get enough of it. It tastes delicious in a slightly sweet dressing with onions, lime juice and soy sauce. Here, the Asian-style jackfruit is served in little lettuce boats with sweetcorn, pickled onions and a dressing made from tahini & lime juice. This recipe serves 4 or can also serve a larger number as finger food.
