Chayote squash is just splendid when combined with poblano peppers, crunchy cucumbers and a sweet vingaigrette.
Ingredients:
1/2 cup, pineapple juice
1 large cucumber, halved lengthwise
1 large chayote squash, peel, pitted and halved lengthwise
2 cups, pineapple, diced
4 poblano peppers, roasted and peeled
1 Tbsp, Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp, olive oil
Directions:
1 In a small saucepan, simmer pineapple juice over low heat, until reduced to 2 tablespoons. Let cool to room temperature.
2 Sauté chayote just until crisp, about 1 to 2 minutes. Thinly slice cucumber and the chili. Toss with pineapple.
3 Toss with pineapple. Whisk the remaining ingredients with the pineapple juice, and pour over vegetables, mix well.
4 Serve immediately or refrigerate, covered up to 4 hours.
5 ENJOY!
