Ulu Mac (Breadfruit Salad)

  • 1 medium ulu, peeled and quartered
  • 1 pound uncooked macaroni
  • 1/2 small onion, minced
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 4 tablespoons Italian parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1-2 dashes tabasco sauce to taste
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste


  1. In a large pot, steam ulu until it's cooked through; when inserting a paring knife, it should come out smooth.
  2. When ulu is cool enough to handle, break apart by hand into bite-sized pieces; set aside.
  3. Cook macaroni according to package directions.
  4. Immediately after macaroni is cooked, drain, then dunk it into a pot of ice water to stop it from cooking; drain well.
  5. Combine all ingredients, adjust seasoning if needed.
  6. Serve with Kajiki BLT.

Makes 8 servings.
