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.

I had one chayote so I made 1/3 of this recipe. Chayote is very mild so the serrano really bumped up the flavour! I would probably julienne the squash next time just so it's easier to eat. Yum! Made for ZWT8. Thanks mersaydees! :)

Not only is this salad delicious and easy to put together, it's addictive! On average, we have this at least once a week and have passed the recipe along to family across the country. Everyone loves it! The only direction I stray from in this recipe is to julienne the chayote instead of slicing it thin. Purely a preference thing. Thanks for giving us a new family favorite, mersaydees!

This is one lovely dish! I loved everything about this, right down to that dang gone dressing that swells with taste and a bit of kick due to the serrano chili (which, I adore!) This lovely salad is so delicious - also with the cilantro makes this recipe end up over the rainbow. I let sit for about 2 hours to meld the flavors - and this was divine! Thanks for posting such a great recipe!
