Nightshade-Free Pico De Gallo

Nightshades are some of the “foods to toss” on The Myers Way® Autoimmune Protocol because they are considered an inflammatory food and immune trigger for many people. The good news is that you don’t even need tomatoes or tomatillos to make a fresh salsa! In this pico de gallo, I use jicama, cucumber, and radish for crunch, brightness, and essential minerals like potassium, plus plenty of fiber. You won’t feel achy or tired after eating this nightshade-free pico so put it on everything from roasted meats to lettuce-wrapped tacos, even dollop into a halved avocado for a fancy appetizer.
