10 Tomato Free Salsa Recipes

What do I have against tomatoes in salsa? Not a thing. I love a good tomato salsa, particularly Pico de Gallo in the summer time when tomatoes are at their peak!

But, I also like other kinds of salsa. So, in honor of the pseudo-Mexican holiday next week, I thought it would be fun to gather up some tomato free salsa recipes. These salsas use all kinds of delicious ingredients from avocados to zucchini with some surprise ingredients in between.

10 tomato free salsa recipes

I intentionally left out Guacamole, because that is a completely separate condiment in my book. Plus, I could be here for eons finding the “best” recipe. Truthfully I don’t even use a recipe, just avocado and garlic and some kind of acid (vinegar or citrus juice) and then a little bit of this and a little bit of that until it tastes how I want it that day. I also left out pepper sauce, though my Spicy Jalapeno Sauce would add a kick to any guacamole or salsa recipe.

Some are from us, some are from other awesome bloggers. Check them out and enjoy:

Bahia Fruit Salsa - melon and pineapple salsa - thatrecipe.comBahia Fruit Salsa – The fruit salad I blogged about last week, chopped finer with some finely diced jalapeno for kick.


Corn Salsa - thatrecipe.comCalifornia Style Corn Salsa – Grilled Corn and artichoke hearts. You can use canned in a pinch, but fresh grilled corn is the best.


blackbeancornsalasa sparklesandastoveCorn and Black Bean Salsa from Sparkles and a Stove – a classic and delicious southwest combination.


Greek Eggplant Salsa - thatrecipe.comEggplant Salsa – yes, eggplant. Remove the skin to get rid of the bitterness and the eggplant makes a wonderful base for salsa.

Mango Salsa - sweet mangoes, salty olives and zesty peppers are combined for this mouthwatering tomato free salsa. Great with chips or as a fruit salad.

Mango Salsa – mangos, olives and bell peppers make for a sweet and salty combo that I love.


Peach Salsa from Cravings of a LunaticPeach Salsa From Cravings of a Lunatic – when peaches are in season in a few months this is going to be fabulous!!


Pineapple Salsa from Two Peas and Their PodPineapple Salsa from Two Peas and Their Pod – like the Bahia Fruit Salsa without the melon and using nice red peppers for contrast.

Salsa Verde from The Crafted SparrowSalsa Verde from The Crafted Sparrow – Tomatillos are not underripe tomatoes, though both plants are in the nightshade family. They are roasted with the jalapenos then combined with some avocado for this zesty green salsa.


Texas Caviar - thatrecipe.comTexas Caviar – A simple salsa using canned black-eyed peas (aka cowpeas) and onions in a zesty dressing.


Roast Zucchini Pesto closet cookingZucchini Salsa from Closet Cooking – this pesto inspired salsa uses roasted zucchini as the base.

Good luck choosing which one to serve at your next fiesta.

      They are so scrumptious, yet many seem to have a mind set of tomato only.

    This is awesome! I recently found out I have a tomato intolerance and knowing there are alternatives out there is great!

      And there are so many delicious alternatives. Not that I don’t love my tomato based salsas too, but like you some can’t eat them.

  6. Danita Carr

    I’m a huge fan of salsa (and pretty much anything Mexican), so like you, I love tomato salsa, but I also like to mix it up a bit! All of your recipes look great! Thanks for sharing! #SmallVictories

    These salsas are weird. Why not have something more authentic made with dried Ancho chilies or something like that?
