Strawberry Salsa | Recipe Renovator | Gluten-free, low-sodium, migraine-friendly, paleo, raw
I made this strawberry salsa for my sister when she came to visit two weeks ago, using one of my freshly ripe, deep red jalapeños and cherry tomatoes from my garden. Everyone loved it and asked when the recipe was going to be on the blog. It’s a super-simple salsa fresca that takes less than ten minutes to prep and serve, although the flavors do get richer and more complex the longer it melds. Also fantastic on grilled fish and chicken.

Fresh cherry tomatoes and strawberries combine with a few other simple ingredients to make this zingy, simple salsa fresca. People on the migraine diet should use white vinegar. If you’re not on the migraine diet white balsamic vinegar is delicious in this. If you’re wimpy about spice, use one half of a jalapeño to start, removing the seeds and ribs, and taste it the salsa once combined. I used two this time, including the seeds and ribs, and it’s pretty darn hot.

Suitable for:
low-sodium, migraine, gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, raw, paleo, reduced-sugar diets

Not for:
people who don’t eat nightshades
