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 peach, chopped

  2. Reply 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.
