Did you know?

Chayote is from the same family as cucumber and squash. Sometimes called a vegetable pear, the slightly sweet flavor of the chayote makes it a great addition to any salad. It’s also a rich source of dietary fiber and anti-oxidants, and contains a mere 16 calorie for every 100-gram serving – similar to how zucchini can help satisfy an appetite!
