This sweet, summery salsa can be made on its own and served with Paleo chips, or as a versatile topping for salads, toast, taco bowls, eggs, meats, or burgers—the possibilities are endless!
This recipe uses cilantro microgreens (we recommend using BrightFresh Micro Cilantro), which contain higher concentrations of protein, fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, and vitamin E than their mature counterpart. The high levels of lutein also work to promote eye health.
If you find yourself skipping over cilantro’s benefits because you belong to the cohort of people with a genetic disposition to dislike cilantro, you may still want to give these microgreens a try. There are claims that micro cilantro doesn’t have the soapy/dirt flavor that some people find with mature cilantro—however, there is no conclusive evidence on this. Try a bite of cilantro microgreens before making this recipe, and if the taste is agreeable, mix it all in to get the full benefits of this nutrient-dense herb.
For those on an auto-immune protocol diet looking for a tomato-free salsa, this recipe is easily AIP convertible, just skip the black pepper and substitute the jalapeño and red and yellow peppers for diced pineapple.
