What to do when you want fresh-tasting salsa before tomatoes are in season? Blend a can of tomatoes with a chayote, then embellish the base with your favorite flavors. Chayote adds cucumberlike texture to this salsa, without cucumber’s distinctive flavor. Serve with chips, or as a condiment to your favorite Mexican dishes.
Blend tomatoes, chayote, green onions, garlic, lime juice, and olive oil in food processor until smooth. Transfer to bowl, season with salt and pepper, if desired, and stir in mango and hot sauce, if using.
