Picadillo chayote salad recipe, vegan food
Easy and delicious recipe with mexican products. As so many restaurants are closed we decided to get busy in the kitchen with lots more home cooked meals.
Chayote (pronounced chahy-oh-tee) is a light green, pear-shaped fruit with a single, large pit and edible flesh and skin. The flesh of the chayote is mild in flavor. It has a texture somewhere in between a potato and cucumber. Although technically a fruit, chayote is often used more like a vegetable in Latin cuisine.
