Chayote Squash Salad

Healthy Chayote Squash Recipe

Think outside the typical salad bowl. Instead of greens, enjoy the melony-cucumber flavors of chayote squash dressed up with Asian accents like rice vinegar and a hint of soy sauce.

Chayotes, also known as “vegetable pears,” are related to zucchini, cucumber, and melons, and actually taste like a combination of the three. Native to Mexico, they are very high in vitamin C and fiber, and very low in calories. Each serving of our Chayote Slaw is just 28 calories. Chayotes can be eaten raw, like our slaw, or cooked.

Asian Fish Sauce

Love Asian-style food but shudder at the huge amounts of sodium that come with store-bought bottles of sauce? It’s scary. One 2-ounce serving often ratchets up 1,500 mg of sodium. That’s more sodium than we should have for the entire day! Our Pritikin Asian Sauce, by contrast, has less than 30 mg of sodium per serving. Sure, this recipe is a lot of ingredients and a lot of time, but keep in mind that one batch can last a very long time because it freezes well. And it’s a lot less expensive than store-bought brands.
