I made for 1 serving and found that it could be 2-3 servings. I did use Spice Mix! and Flavoured Aromatic Herb and Fruit Oil for the salt, pepper and oil. Served over garden grown baby greens. Chayotes gave a nice crunch almost no flavor working great with the peppery arugula. Thanks.

A very mild salad, that goes well with a spicier dish, like Cuban Ropa Vieja. I love chayote but don't fix it enough. This is quick and easy, and will be made often. Thnx for posting, Sharon. Made for ZWT5 for RRR.
