Strawberry "Pico de Gallo" Salsa (AIP, nightshade-free)

Strawberry "Pico de Gallo" Salsa is an unbelievably wonderful condiment that's tomato-free!, nightshade-free and great for wellness diets that seek to reduce inflammation. Yet this favorite Mexican topping is incredibly gourmet and special.
Perfect for Paleo, AIP, Whole30, VAD, GAPS and Keto diets, this savory treat is lovely each spring and summer when strawberries are fresh, but amazingly, can even be made in the fall and winter months with good frozen strawberries.
