Rice is a Latin dietary staple and guava, a sweet, rich and juicy native Central American fruit. In this recipe for Black Rice & Guava Salad, I combine fresh guava with sweet basil and lime for a satisfying Latin spin on a traditional rice side dish. It’s a versatile dish you can prepare with your kids since the ingredients are easy to work with, easy to use and fresh. It’s also a great way to introduce them to new flavors from su país. Plus, guava is a nutritional powerhouse: it is low in saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium. It is also a good source of vitamin A, C, folate, potassium, copper, manganese and fiber.
