Chayote Slaw with Mango Vinaigrette

wpid-slaw-with-mango.jpg.jpeg

I like to try unfamiliar ingredients, but sometimes have no idea what to do with them. Oftentimes, if the ingredient is primarily used in Latin America, I still don’t know what to do with it because the recipes are written in Spanish. My husband is Latino, but he doesn’t usually know what anything is. **Sigh** However, things are improving. I am finding more recipes posted every day.

Recently a new grocery store opened up around here. Well, maybe not exactly a grocery store, but not a farm stand either. It’s called North Shore Farms. It’s like Trader Joes or Whole Foods, I guess. I was all excited to try it because I like to think I am buying local and organic foods whenever I can afford that option. I find a big difference and I feel better about what I am feeding my family. They had lots of grand opening sales, and I was happy about that.

Baked Gnocchi with Chicken

About This Recipe

For this recipe you will need a skillet and a casserole. If you have an oven-safe skillet with deep sides, even better. Most skillets are only safe to 350 degree or 400; this recipe is baked at 425. A Dutch oven would work well too. I have saved a step and used a rotisserie chicken, but any cooked chicken will do, so this is great for transforming leftovers.
