      This was a perfect lite summer salad. The only change I made was that I ended up sautéing the chayote in a bit of butter for a quicker fix. Oh, and I also added some fresh snap peas from the garden. I'd never cooked or even tried chayote before and really enjoyed its fresh crisp taste & texture. Thanks so much for the wonderful recipe Bergy.

      This was delicious and refreshing. I did make the following changes: left out the parsley because I had none, added some dried cilantro, a little black pepper and 1/4 tsp. of cumin. I'd like to try it with fresh cilantro (didn't have that either). Also, I used a lot less oil. I really liked this - it was my first experience with chayote and I'll certainly make it again!
