KIWI, GINGER, LIME AND POMEGRANATE SALAD (Salade de kiwi, gingembre et grenade)

KIWI, GINGER, LIME AND POMEGRANATE SALAD
(Salade de kiwi, gingembre et grenade)

Kiwi and ginger ? I know, it seems strange when you hear it but ginger appears to be one of the best combination so far (for me) to perfectly match the sour kiwi fruit. Try it...The first time I proposed to bring this salad for a pic-nic, absolutely everyone asked me if by any chance I didn't want to add something else to this salad. I am not sure why but they certainly thought that it would be a little bit too bland, tasteless, who knows ? 
Since 11 years ago now, there is not a single pic-nic with my friends without this salad...

Wine pairing : Muscadet (Blanc) from The LoireValley.

This kiwi, lime, ginger and pomegranate salad recipe is gluten-free.
