Whenever I travel, I would scour the local market for fresh farm produce. So when I am in the Cordilleras, one of my favorite picks is chayote tops.
One time, I googled for a recipe that would give a different twist to my usual chayote shoots salad. And I found one: steamed shoots topped with salted egg and tomatoes. I am not a food expert but being an Ilocano who loves green leaves, tops and shoots, the recipe is something that I love!
