1 kg chokoes (chayote)
1 tablespoon white vinegar
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon freshly crushed garlic
1 medium onion finely sliced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh green chillies
freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1. Heat water in a large saucepan enough to boil all the chokoes. Add salt and stir to dissolve completely. Add the chokoes and boil for about 20 minutes or until tender. Remove from boiling water and allow to cool.
2. Peel and halve the chokoes. Discard the seeds and cut into slices according to preferences.
3. Mix the oil, vinegar, salt and pepper to taste, freshly chopped green chillies (if desired) and sliced onions together.
4. Pour over the sliced chokoes and carefully mix together without breaking the chokoes.
