This low fodmap salsa recipe is fresh, flavourful, and a great side dish or appetizer to enjoy with low fodmap rice crackers or chips. You can also use this low fodmap salsa in a homemade burrito bowl with basmati rice and grilled fish, chicken, or beef.
It only takes 5-10 minutes to prepare this fodmap-friendly salsa. Nothing beats a fresh salsa inspired by the classic Mexican salsa seasoned with lime, salt, and pepper.
The key to making the best fresh low fodmap salsa is to chop the tomato, red pepper, and green onion finely. I swear the Mexicans are pros at chopping up vegetables for salsa, so their fresh salsa is the best!
So grab a sharp chopping knife and cutting board to whip up this fresh salsa. I find a serrated knife is best for slicing the tomatoes, especially if your chopping knife is dull.
To prepare this low fodmap salsa, wash the vegetables, chop finely, and then season with lime juice and salt and pepper.
Ingredients for the low fodmap salsa
- 1 cup tomato (2 med tomatoes)
- 1 cup red pepper (1 medium red pepper)
- ¼ cup green onion
- Juice from one fresh lime
- Touch of salt and pepper to taste
I made this low fodmap salsa with the tops of green onions, which are low fodmap and an excellent substitute for a white or red onion that is often used in salsa recipes.
If you want to make a low fodmap salsa without onions, substitute the green onion in this recipe for cilantro. Freshly chopped cilantro is a great way to flavor fresh salsa. Cilantro is also great for gut health is it inhibits the growth of harmful bacteria in the gut.
Fresh cilantro was one of my top superfoods for gut health on my Viome gut health test results.
Onions are a high fodmap vegetable that many people with SIBO or IBS notice a worsening of SIBO symptoms such as burping, bloating, or abdominal cramping.
By substituting red or white onion for the tops of green onion or cilantro in this low fodmap salsa recipe, you can enjoy a classic tasting fresh salsa. It is the perfect appetizer, side dish, or topping for low fodmap burrito bowls.
This salsa is also a great low fodmap salad salsa to enjoy alongside baked salmon with basmati rice, a delicious and nutritious SIBO friendly meal.
