Chayote Squash


A few months ago, I ran across a new item in the produce section. I had seen them a couple of times, but never paused to investigate. The label said Chayote Squash. What in the world....?
So of course, I bought a couple.

I looked up a few things online, and ended up simply doing it up in a saute pan with some olive oil, sliced white onion, garlic, black pepper and oregano. It was incredibly yummy and light. I'm going to have to experiment with this some more. Any ideas?
Carnivorous husband's quote: it "Wasn't at all disgusting." Does he know how to compliment my cooking, or what?

A while since you wrote this post, but in Australia we use them in desserts, mainly cooked with apples in pies.
