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.
