Low FODMAP Fresh Strawberry Salsa

Our Low FODMAP Fresh Strawberry Salsa is easy to make, a nice option from classic salsa, and we particularly love it with pork, fish or chicken. You can whip this up while your protein is grilling and then just spoon some right on top before serving.

  • 12- ounces (340 g) fresh strawberries, hulled and finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup (12 g) finely chopped cilantro
  • 1/3 cup (24 g) finely chopped scallion greens
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • ½ teaspoon lime zest
  • 2 teaspoons minced jalapeno
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar or honey
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Stir the strawberries, cilantro, scallion greens, lime juice, lime zest, minced jalapeno and sweetener together in a non-reactive bowl. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

  2. Salsa is ready to serve but improves after a 30-minute sit. You can refrigerate in an airtight container overnight, but it will lose some of its vibrancy in color and taste.



FODMAP Information

Our recipes are based on Monash University and FODMAP Friendly science.

  • Honey: Honey has been lab tested by both FODMAP Friendly and Monash University. FODMAP Friendly gives it a “Fail” at 2 teaspoons (15 g). Monash says that while clover honey specifically is only low FODMAP at ½ teaspoon (3 g), they state that honey is low FODMAP in 1 teaspoon (7 g) amounts.
  • Lime Juice: Monash University has lab tested lime juice and it is low FODMAP in 1 cup (250 g) amounts (double that of lemon juice, as an interesting fact).
  • Scallions: The green parts of scallions are low FODMAP as determined by Monash University lab testing and can be used to add onion flavor to your low FODMAP cooking.
  • Strawberries: This popular berry has been lab tested by both Monash University and FODMAP Friendly. Monash lab testing reports that no FODMAPs were detected in strawberries. They suggest 10 medium berries (150 g) as a serving. FODMAP Friendly gives strawberries a “pass” and pegs 10 medium berries at (140 g).
  • Sugar: Monash University and FODMAP Friendly have both lab tested white, granulated sugar. Monash states that a Green Light low FODMAP serving size of white sugar is 1/4 cup (50 g). FODMAP Friendly simply states that they have tested 1 tablespoon and that it is low FODMAP. Regular granulated white sugar is sucrose, which is a disaccharide made up of equal parts glucose and fructose. Sucrose is broken down and absorbed efficiently in the small intestine.

Please always refer to the Monash University & FODMAP Friendly smartphone apps for the most up-to-date lab tested information. As always, your tolerance is what counts; please eat accordingly. The ultimate goal of the low FODMAP diet is to eat as broadly as possible, without triggering symptoms, for the healthiest microbiome.
