I Bought a Chayote. Now What?

I decided to try a chayote after seeing it on sale at my grocery store for only $0.50 each. I had no idea what to do with chayote (okay, I had no idea what a chayote even was!) and decided to cook it with another ingredient I never know what to do with, cauliflower.

It turned out to be delicious!

Kitchen Pig LOVES Sherry.

 
So healthy and pretty.

I have posted this original recipe on recipezaar.com, but without any ratings, no one sees it. Please rate my recipe!
