Has anyone made a blast with the Chayote yet ? I'm heading to the store in a few and considering buying one to try, and I am curious about the taste.

I have discovered that I am not thrilled with my blasts made with spinach, I seem to be in a kale thing right now.

 

I did once, but I couldn't really taste it. I love cooking chayote with a little bit of corn, tomato and onion in a quick stirfry. Add a little cayenne for a kick-delicious! ..but I digress. haha I used a chunk about half the size of my forefinger. It wasn't much and that's probably why I couldn't taste it. Give it a try! I'm imagining a kale/chayote/carrot blast with a bit of lime might hit the spot. :)
Well...no...in Iowa we shoot coyotes. OK, that was a joke...please illuminate me in "chayote"; it sounds intriguing.
Cattlegirl :)... It's used a lot in Mexican and Latin dishes, it's more in the squash family as opposed to a sweeter fruit. I'm going to give it a try and see how it tastes - the kale, chayote, lime and carrot sounds yummy !

Here's a link to some info on chayote, though, for when the coyotes are sc wrote: Well...no...in Iowa we shoot coyotes. OK, that was a joke...please illuminate me in "chayote"; it sounds intriguing.

Chayote is a dominican vegetable not fruit. They peel them and boil them and eat or cook with meat, eggs. There is no special taste to it!
