    mary winecoff's Note:

    Chayote is a relative of squashes and has a gentle flavor. This is a classic dish in Guatemala.

      This dish had a lovely flavour, but was very mild. For a little extra kick, I added a sprinkle of creole seasoning & I think this made all the difference. Served with Spicy Skillet Pork Chops for a great dinner. Thanks Mary for sharing. Made for ZWT4

      Very good and lovely appearance. I am unable to buy chayote in northern Wisconsin so substituted with summer squash. I did add Italian seasoning and lots of pepper. I also used leftover rice. (Just love incorporating leftovers into a meal.) This would be wonderful with fresh herbs like basil. I had this with Broccoli Dijon, Italian Parmesan Bread for Bread Machine, and Grilled Ham Steak for a great meal. Thanks for sharing a keeper! Made for ZWT4 for the Flying Dutchess’.

      This was my first time with chayote so I wasn't sure what to expect! But not to worry ~ Mary came through with another wonderful recipe! I did use 2 LARGE cloves of garlic & then substituted some lemon pepper for the S&P & had a very tasty vegetarian dish! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
