Keep It FODMAP Friendly
No matter how you use it, this low FODMAP salsa is going to steal the show. Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe low FODMAP.
First up, tomatoes. According to the Monash app, Roma tomatoes are safe in servings of one tomato (45 g). Heads up, servings of 5 1/2 tomatoes or more are high in the FODMAP fructan. This recipe uses 3 Roma tomatoes, which works out to 1/2 a tomato per serving. This is well within the suggested serving size.
To get the tell-tale onion flavour, this recipe also uses green onions. According to Monash University, the tops of a green onion don’t have any FODMAPs. This means you can tweak the recipe to your taste without increasing your FODMAP load.
Just so you know, this recipe tastes the best when the flavours have had a few hours to commingle. If you need your salsa ASAP, swap the olive oil for onion infused oil to give the flavours a little boost. Otherwise, make sure to let your salsa sit in the fridge for at least two hours.
