Chocho and Pomegranate Salad
I didn’t really want to admit it…in fact I shouldn’t have to as it never really happened but it seems as though the end of the summer is here. If you like me live in the UK you will be fully aware of the very sorry excuse for a summer we have experienced this year. I for one have taken every opportunity to enjoy those fleeting days of sunshine and in a bid for those memories not to fade to quickly I have created this perky little salad to remind me (and you) of those summer flavours. In this recipe I have used chocho (also known as chayote and chrystaphene) which is a vegetable found within the Caribbean and South America. It has a multitude of uses and benefits. I enjoy eating it raw as much as I do steamed. It has a neutral flavour and can be used in both sweet and savoury dishes. You should be able to find it in most Caribbean food markets. It is easy to prepare just peel, cut in half remove the pip and slice. I hope you will find this salad as refreshing as I did.
