Guava Sauce

Cooking Light
Try this as a salad dressing or as a marinade for pork, chicken, or fish. Guava paste is about an inch-thick block wrapped in cellophane in a 16-ounce package. It is sold in Latin markets and large supermarkets. Store any unused product in the refrigerator because it is easier to cut when chilled.
