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!

Recipe variation: For a more filling meal, toss the final product with buttered egg noodles.

Kitchen Pig LOVES Sherry. He's a bit of a lush.

So healthy and pretty.
