How would you explain this sentence? Independence Day, the town boiling with parades for the Revolution. At school the cretins performed in costume: traditional dances, impaired by the absence of girls. The teachers made a Patriotism Banquet: rice in the colors of the flag, red and green salsa. Cups of rice water, sugared almonds, a little of everything, and of nothing quite enough. At the head of the table by the bowl of pomegranates, Señora Bartolome had put a note: Take only one, our Lord Jesus is watching! How would you explain this sentence: he teachers made a Patriotism Banquet: rice in the colors of the flag, red and green salsa? Does it mean the Patriotism Banquet included rice and salsa? Or the Patriotism Banquet only included rice which was made in the colors of the flag by red and green salsa. Thanks!PS: the story took place in Mexico.

Salsa is a hot, spicy sauce made from onions and tomatoes, usually eaten with Mexican or Spanish food. It cannot be made into rice...So I'm sure your first understanding is right. Moreover, the banquet included other things in the following sentence other than these two.

Thank you very much. One more question: Is it the red salsa that makes rice red? Or there is some kind of rice that is naturally red in Mexico?

Yeah! There was green rice, white rice and red rice. In Mexico is usual to cook red rice for meal.
