Pickled Chayote Salad

Recipes

Recently I wrote an article for SELF Magazine featuring a variety of ethnic veggies  that go beyond your mainstream kale. I took it a step further and actually bought most of the veggies shared by other Dietitians to try myself.

 Chayote is one of the veggies I picked up. I’ve seen it at the supermarket before but was never adventurous enough to try it until now. It looks like a green pear with a fist at the bottom.

In terms of nutrition, it is a source of:

– folate

– vitamin C

– manganese

– potassium

Chayotes can be eaten cooked or raw. When I took a bite of it, it was crunchy and had a flavour profile similar to cucumber and a bit of celery.

I put together this pickled chayote salad while I was putting together a turkey dinner. It was quick, easy, and made with simple ingredients found in my kitchen.
