Nightshade Free Peach Mango Salsa

Another casualty of the nightshade intolerance is salsa.

I didn’t really learn to appreciate the sweet and spicy goodness that was salsa until a few years back. I was, as they say, a purist when it came to tortilla chips. And then one day, everything change. And I began to enjoy it.

And then, we found Mrs. Renfro’s Peach Salsa. And I loved it.

A week and a half ago, I found out I couldn’t eat nightshades anymore. And there went the salsa. Until yesterday. I decided to try my hand at a nightshade free salsa! I know. I’m getting brave. We used it on top of the lentil burgers and it was delish.

Nightshade Free Peach Mango Salsa


  • 1 ripe mango, peeled and chopped
  • 1 ripe peach, chopped
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-2 tbs lime juice or juice of 1 lime

Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Mix. Enjoy!

  1. I am hosting a taco party tonight and the guest of honor is nightshade free (and vegan!) — this is SO HELPFUL. I think I am going to add cilantro and a little finely ground black pepper. Ginger might also work.

  2. Thank you soooo much. I am going to try going night shade free. This recipe is going to get me started in the right direction.

  3. I added some fresh cilantro out of the garden and had it on fish tacos. It was amazing. Thanks for sharing, I, to have been missing the salsa.
