Note from Delish:
Growing up, I always see my mom making this appetizer at home. And I’d say this is one of my favorites. So I decided to share this to everyone. You can adjust the flavor by adding more salt, or vinegar and sugar if you want to. This appetizer will become even tastier if you leave it overnight or 4 hours before serving. Enough to get all the flavors absorbed by the jackfruit.
