This recipe is good right off the grill but I think it tastes better after it is cold! The flavor is interesting and different and the ginger is not too overwhelming. I like to serve it on top of a chopped romaine salad with sliced green onions,  halved grape tomatoes, and either Italian dressing or a light ranch dressing. It’s great in a sandwich too.
