Pickled Chayote Squash With Carrot Salad Recipe

Marinated chayote salad is beautiful, refreshing and very beneficial for healthy dishes. Very crunchy and delicious. It is almost no time to make but needs time to marinade. I never peel and deseed chayote grown in our area at stores. However, if it overgrowing skin needs to be peeled and seed removed. The juice of this fruit is not toxic but when you handle chayote better wear gloves. When I was taking photos for this recipe, I focus on the photos and forget to put on gloves. I’m glad I washed my hands right away! My fingers feel uncomfortable by the next day.
