Chayote and Zucchini Squash Salad by MexFoodJournal

It is so simple to prepare with just a few ingredients. You may think it looks bland but don’t be fooled. Lime juice brings out the bright, full flavor of the vegetables.


  • 3 chayotes
  • 3 small zucchinis calabacitas
  • 3 limes
  • 1 tsp. salt
6 servings


Cut the chayotes in half lengthwise.

Put them in a large pot and cover with water.

Cover the pot and bring to a boil. Cook for 5 minutes.

Slice the zucchini into spears.

Add them to the pot with the chayote. Cover and cook for 5 more minutes.

Drain the vegetables.

Chop the chayote into 1" pieces.

Arrange the vegetables on a serving plate.

Sprinkle the vegetables with salt and the juice from the 3 limes.
