FRUIT SALAD WITH POMEGRANATE, GRAPES, GINGER AND WALNUTS
There are no measures in what I am proposing today, you have to mix and mingle on your own and turn it to your own liking, I do give you the ingredients though so I am not leaving you completely on your own. This fruit salad came about because I bought some pomegranates that were not really ripe and therefore not sweet enough to be eaten on their own but I couldn’t just throw them on the compost heap so I brainstormed a bit and decided to make a fruit salad with them. I had a lot of grapes and grapes here are so sweet, when I first moved here I almost had a sugar shock when I ate them but I soon learned how to pick the sweetest bunches. Some things you learn quickly without any effort, I wish it was like that more often.
I had pomegranates and sweet grapes so I added grated fresh ginger and some chopped walnuts and added them to the rest and hoped for the best. And I obviously liked it otherwise it wouldn’t have ended up here today: the sweetness of the grapes was nicely balanced by the more acid pomegranate that gave a nice crunchy feel, the ginger added a peppery zing and the texture of the walnuts crowned it all. Have I convinced you yet?
