Chayote [chi-OH-tay], also called mirliton, resembles a pear in size, shape, and color. The mild flavor is versatile depending on how it’s seasoned. Enjoy chayote raw in salads, or use it any way you’d use summer squash.


Whisk together lime juice, brown sugar, and fish sauce for the vinaigrette.

Toss chayote, bean sprouts, cucumber, scallions, basil, cilantro, and jalapeño with the vinaigrette.

Recipe Note:Thoroughly rinse bean sprouts before using, and check the expiration date. Sprouts spoil quickly and should be used within two days of purchase.
