An attractive, mild-flavored side dish. I used the whole chayote, including skin and pit. I sauteed to crisp-tender, not to brown like in the picture, so the finished dish included pleasant subtle colors, from the white of the onions through the cream of the pit and the light green of the flesh, to stronger green from the onion tops and parsley. It had a very mild flavor, which would be good with a strongly-flavored main dish. Eating the vegetable dish alone, I added lemon juice for a little more interest.

I can't think of a single improvement and I will most likely make it again. <br /><br />3 Stars This needed a little *something*something*. I might make it again, but will add my own improvements if I do. <br /><br />I love to eat! And I love to cook. I tend to take over the kitchen when I get in there. Even the dog knows the command get outta my kitchen! LOL. Cooking for other people and trying new recipes or foods is FUN! I have a small (but growing quickly!!) cookbook collection and one of my favorite things to do is to read recipes and plan meals. Rachael Ray, Horn of the Moon and Moosewood are favorites of mine. <br /><br />We spend a lot of time outdoors camping, hiking and backpacking. Yup. I cook in the woods too! I've made deals with my hiking buddies... If they carry in my food, I'll cook for them. I recently published a backpacking cookbook.
