MRE RECIPE: Cucumber Mango Salsa

Several people have asked me for recipes that avoid the nightshade family: tomato, eggplant, potato. Here is one!

1/2 cup cucumber dices
1/2 cup mango dices
2 tbsp green onion/scallion dices
1 tsp cilantro
1 tsp lime powder
1 tsp raw sugar
1 tsp apple cider vinegar powder
1/2 tsp horseradish (or hot radish) powder
s & p to taste

Combine and seal. When ready to eat, add boiling water, stir and cover until rehydrated. You want a very thick chunky salsa. Adjust seasonings. Serve with chips or veggies.

  • I let my radishes grow big and super-hot, slice thin and dehydrate until crispy. Then I powder. Easy peasy "horseradish" powder!
  • Nightshade-Free: no potato, tomato or eggplant
  • Gluten-Free: naturally
  • Dairy-Free: naturally
  • Vegan: naturally
  • Low-Sugar: there is a little bit of sugar in this. If you desire no-sugar, eliminate it and add a tiny bit of stevia to offset the sourness of the vinegar.
