Chayote Squash is one that we tend to overlook but next time, think again. This one like most from squash family, has high water content besides being high in Vitamins C and B. We love the fact that it can be had raw or cooked, so it is a quick one to stir up on days when there is not a lot of time for cooking. It is a fall vegetable (even though we see it through out the year) and is available in abundance at great prices right now. Enjoy!
