Good salad. This was the first time that I have ever tried chayote so I used 1/2 squash for one serving. It was mild so the other ingredients kicked it up nicely. After reading the other reviews, I julienned mine which worked well. Thanks mersaydees for a nice salad. Made for ZWT8 - Mexico/Tex Mex.
