In a bowl, mix the vinegar with the oil, season with salt and pepper. Finely chop the ginger and add to the bowl along with the ginger syrup. Add the salad ingredients and toss to combine.
Lightly oil a grill pan and grill the skewers until cooked through, 4-5 minutes. Serve with the salad and garnish with cilantro.
