Needing a simple, clean, and nightshade free salsa? My Avocado Salad recipe is great as an appetizer or topping to any taco. This recipe is gluten free, paleo friendly, and nightshade free. Overall, this anti-inflammatory salad is a healthy and refreshing addition to your next dinner party or Taco Tuesday.
You can find this recipe featured on my Pulled Beef & Avocado Salad Taco post. I will make this on weekends to enjoy when we are relaxing on the patio, or as a topper to our tacos. The creaminess from the avocado, the crunch of the radish, and the sweetness from the mangos are an amazing combination.
I am currently following Dr. Will Cole’s Elimin8 protocol, and I am unable to consume nightshades. So, I wanted to create a fresh salsa type dish that I could enjoy in place of your typical guacamole or tomato salsa. I substituted the tomatoes and peppers for radishes. I really enjoy the texture here from the radish to offset the smooth textures from the mangos and avocados. Of course, the lime really brings the dish to life. I used two whole limes, because I love vibrant citrus flavors. However, start with the juice from 1 lime and see how you feel then add more to your preference. Enjoy friends!
Combine all of the ingredients into a bowl and gently toss. Add more lime juice depending on how much citrus you like. I like a lot so I go with 2 whole limes. Serve immediatenly, or store in the refrigerator in an airtight container until ready to serve.
Here is a gluten free, dairy free, and paleo friendly taco recipe for your next Taco Tuesday. The juicy pulled beef sirloin on top of a tasty avocado salad will have you wanting seconds. Dig into this recipe for a clean and simple taco that will satisfy everyone at the table.
For this recipe I used my Avocado Salad. I love the combination of the creamy avocado, the sweetness from of the mangos, and the beautiful citrus from the lime. You can serve this as an appetizer, or as a topping to any taco. I wanted to make a salsa type recipe that did not have nightshades such as tomatoes, enter the radishes. The radishes add a nice crunchy texture for added dimension.
I also prepared some Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice for this recipe for some added veggies. When I make my cauliflower rice I cook it only to tender, or else you will end up with a mushy texture. I used an Instant Pot for the pulled beef, because that is what I have. I love the Instant Pot, because of the convenience on nights when I am running short on time but I still want a tasty meal.
You all know how I feel about tacos. They are my favorite food. We have this frequently when I order the beef sirloin from ButcherBox. This is an easy meal to make that has a clean list of ingredients. It is hassle free and packed with flavor. I hope you enjoy these as much as we do!

Pull the beef apart with a fork in separate bowl, and add about 1/2 cup of the juice from the pot into the bowl to allow the meat to absorb the juice.
