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.

Recipe Notes

To peel chayotes, you’ll probably want to wear disposable gloves or peel them under cold running water, as they often ooze a slightly sticky substance.  Though completely nontoxic, it may irritate sensitive skin.  Slice the skin off with a regular vegetable peeler, rotating while peeling, as you would a potato.
