Chayote is a gourd-like fruit, the shape and size of a very large pear. Chayote is available year round. Look for those that are small, firm and unblemished. Refrigerate in a plastic bag for up to 1 month. Chayotes can be prepared in all the same ways that you make summer squash. Chayote, because of it's mild flavor, is a vegetable that mixes very well with more dominant flavors.
Buy navel oranges to use in this salad since they are sweet, flavorful and seedless. This large fruit has bright orange skin that is easy to peel. Should you use a orange that is not seedless be sure and carefully remove the seeds while keeping the slices intact for a prettier arranged salad.
Cut a 1/2-inch thick slice off both the top and the bottom ends of each orange. Cut the peel and the pith away from the fruit with a sharp paring knife, using a downward motion that follows the shape of the orange. Slice the oranges crosswise into 1/2- inch thick rounds; set aside.
Substitute 1 jicama, peeled and sliced for the chayote, if desired.
