Strawberry Salsa

This is a nightshade free Strawberry Salsa recipe for a naturally sweet and tangy topping or dip. This recipe is allergy friendly (gluten, dairy, shellfish, nut, egg, and soy free) and suits the autoimmune protocol (AIP), paleo and vegan diets.

Finding an AIP friendly salsa in stores is impossible. Everything pre-made has salsa staples like tomatoes and jalapeños. I love both of those things but my body is saying no. Using sweet strawberries and juicy jicama are a flavorful substitute for tomatoes. The shallot is a not-so-spicy sub for jalapeños. The cilantro and lime bring the tang and freshness that ties the dish together. This Strawberry Salsa is delicious with tortillas or plantain chips.Here's a nightshade free Strawberry Salsa recipe that can be used for a naturally sweet and tangy topping or dip.

If you haven’t heard of jicama (pronounced hē-kə-mə), it’s a root vegetable that has a nutty flavor and is quite juicy. Almost like a savory apple. The skin of the root is not edible. You need to use a knife to cut away the skin. Don’t use a potato peeler, as the skin is too thick. You’ll need a knife to cut it back and expose the edible center.

Raw jicama is very good and tastes great in not just salsas but also salads. You can cook jicama as well but it’s not something that I’ve ever tried. If you’ve tried cooked jicama, I’d love your recipes and ideas.

This recipe is AIP friendly but it’s not just for AIP followers. My mom, who has no food restrictions, loved it when I served it with grilled chicken and a simple side salad. It was a very light and fresh summery meal. I realize that it’s still springtime but we’ve already had 90-degree weather here in San Diego. Either way, i hope you enjoy it as well!

I’ve included options for gluten free, dairy free and aip diets. You could also substitute butter lettuce with romaine. However, butter lettuce has a more mild flavor and really lend itself better to wraps.
