This Chunky Avocado Salsa recipe was adapted from a recipe I found (and loved!) via one of my fellow vegan bloggers back when I was still doing that whole thing. Gosh, that must have been six or seven years ago. Her site is gone now, sadly (Liz, if you’re out there, I hope you’ve been well!), but I like to think that her fabulous recipe lives on in my household, albeit in a heavily-modified form. The original recipe had black beans, bell peppers, and corn in it, but this autoimmune protocol version is just as tasty. It goes well on salads, burgers, and with chips of any kind! I like to make myself a big ol’ serving with plantain chips while my husband can enjoy his with corn chips and whatever spices or seasonings he wants to add (usually a big ol’ splash of hot sauce). I like to use it as a guacamole substitute, but would like to emphasize that it is NOT guacamole. It’s got olives in it. And no lime or cilantro. Guac purists should stick with my AIP-friendly guacamole recipe.
Looking for more easy AIP recipes?
I know diet change can feel overwhelming. I started the autoimmune protocol at a time when only four other people were writing about it, and over the years, I’ve striven to give you the resources I wish I’d had when I got started. Not just recipes, but ways to implement them. My first ebook 28 Days of AIP is a meal plan that will help you get going (or get back on the wagon) with as little fuss as possible. With a variety of simple, delicious recipes, plenty of leftovers so you don’t spend all your free time in the kitchen, and shopping lists ready to go, all you have to do is follow the plan, then sit down and enjoy your meal! It’s available as a digital download for $9.99.
