  1. In a large Ziploc bag combine shredded jackfruit with cumin, smoked paprika, oregano, onion powder, garlic powder, chili powder, crushed red pepper flakes, vegetable broth and brown sugar. Seal the bag and shake to evenly coat the jackfruit. Let marinate 1-2 hours, or overnight.

  3. In a large bowl combine romaine lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, cilantro, red onions, and black beans. Toss.
  4. For the dressing, combine the dressing ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Add water as needed to thin out the dressing to desired consistency.
  5. Divide the salad among 4 bowls.
  6. Top each bowl with vegan jackfruit pulled pork mixture and dressing. Add pepper to taste.
