Low FODMAP Tomato, Watermelon & Kumquat Salad
Don't know about you, but I really enjoy eating salads, especially in the summertime.
Tomatoes come in all shapes, sizes and colours and are a super refreshing addition to any salad. Did you know that a tomato is actually a fruit? But we mostly use them like vegetables!
Well this recipe uses tomatoes like fruit! I combined red, green, orange and yellow tomato with watermelon and kumquats.
To make this salad a little more interesting, I added finely sliced fresh chili pepper and a few springs of basil..
But you could add any vegetables or fruit that you like!
What fruit and vegetables will you throw into a salad today? I've listed out a few Low FODMAP items to get you started.
Notes before we get cooking!
FODMAP red, amber green rating reflects the total amount of Fructose (FTS), Lactose (L), Mannitol (M), Sorbitol (S), Galactooligosaccharide (GOS) and Oligos Fructans (FTA) in the TOTAL volume/weight of the ingredients used in the recipe.
I'm a big fan of simple recipes that don't need fancy equipment. For this recipe it does help to have a sharp knife for cutting the vegetables and fruit.
I'm very passionate about the management of autoimmune conditions in a healthy way.
I speak with medical professionals, read journals, try and test new recipes to share with you and diligently undertake research online. That being said, as you know, each autoimmune disease, as well as any set of symptoms you may be experiencing are unique.
