Remember that mandoline you bought thinking you'd use it all the time and it is now stuck in the back of the cupboard? Pull it out and use it for this simple salad. If you don't have a mandoline you can thinly slice the Asian pear and chayote or use a food processor to thinly slice it. Even spiralizing would work.
