Both the chayote and dressing can be prepared ahead, but toss them together just before serving because liquid will drain from your vegetables if dressed in advance.

  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 chayote
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 clove garlic finely grated
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Method

In saucepan of boiling salted water, boil chayotes until tender-crisp, about 5 minutes. Drain and chill under cold water; drain well. Slice thinly; pat dry with paper towels.

In large bowl, whisk together oil, lime juice, garlic, salt and pepper. Add chayote and cilantro; toss.
