Nightshade Free Summer Salsa (AIP/Paleo)

Nightshade-Free Summer Salsa

Summer is often a season of low-key entertaining and it can be so helpful to have a simple go-to recipe for those backyard cookouts, pool parties, or fourth of July celebrations. Chips and salsa is a classic, but not an option when you can’t eat nightshades. That is why I came up with this recipe. This yummy salsa combines the fresh flavors of summer and is a perfect low-key entertaining staple recipe! The fruit is sweet and delicious, the cucumber is refreshing but it is the ginger and the red onion that bump it up a notch and add that spice that all of us reformed salsa-lovers crave. I hope you enjoy!
