Kale is so 2013. Cauliflower has had its day in the sun. The new vegetable that has people and Pinterest buzzing is chayote squash, pronounced "chah-yo-tay." Chayote squash is a good source of vitamin C, vitamin B-6, folate, dietary fiber, and potassium. Although it can be eaten raw and is sometimes shredded to put into salads and slaws, it's more often cooked. It's popular in Cajun, Hispanic, Indian and Filipino cuisines, but it's becoming increasingly common to see it in other cuisines as well as farmers markets and in the produce section of grocery stores.
