- In a large pot over medium-high heat, bring water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook 8-10 minutes or until just tender.
- In the meantime, drain and rinse the jackfruit and put into a food processor and blend until small pieces that kind of resembles canned tuna. Set aside.
- In a large bowl combine the mayo, yogurt, vinegar, and sugar and whisk well. set aside to let the sugar dissolve. about 10 minutes.
- When the pasta is done, drain and rinse in cold water to stop the cooking process. Add the pasta, jackfruit, celery, carrots, onion, and tomatoes to the sauce in the large bowl and combine well. Add the salt and pepper if needed and mix well. Adjust the seasoning to taste. Chill in the fridge until ready to serve. Keep covered.
This recipe is slightly sweet and tangy but the flavors pair well with each other. I always make this when I just don’t feel like cooking a huge meal and it is a hit every time. I never have leftovers when I make this recipe. You can adjust the sweetness to your liking, You can also add in a bit of lemon juice to pep it up even more. I do this sometimes as well. Sometimes I also add black olives to switch it up a bit. It all depends on what you have on hand and your preferences. Any way you make it, It is super delicious.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Let me tell you a little bit about me. I am a mom of two, a stepmom of 1, two wild and silly pups, and I have the best husband in the world. I also have a love of cooking and baking. I am always in the kitchen finding new recipes to try, recreating old family recipes, and reminiscing about the old ways. I am vintage at heart and love all things old and cast iron. I love spending time with the family and pups and just going where life takes us.
I created my blog a few years ago with my youtube channel because I thought that If I shared a recipe, then people just might like to see just how the recipe is put together. I share all of my family recipes along with today's recipes. Whether it is old-fashioned recipes, sourdough, einkorn, desserts, sheet pan meals, or even crockpot meals, they are all absolutely delicious.
I spend hours, if not days, creating and dabbling with recipes to make sure they are the best for you and your family. All of my recipes are family tested and family-approved before they are ever posted to my blog or youtube channel.
Every now and again I will share some behind-the-scenes fun and chaos of our creations and family adventures. I hope you all stick around and join us here at The Southern Rustic and see what we cook up in my kitchen. You can find all of my social media information in the Contact/Donate OR the Social Media Accounts tab on my home page. There I have listed my Instagram pages, YouTube channel, Email, and other information so you can easily find everything in one place.
I hope that you all have a wonderful, wonderful day and I will see you soon.
