Red, White and Blue Salad

I love a salad that's loaded up with goodies, and this one definitely fits the bill! With lightly pickled cucumbers, grapes, blueberries, pistachios and gorgonzola cheese, it's got a ton of amazing flavor going on.

    Made this for sun brunch & ate the leftovers all week long! Love all the flavors. Had never tried pickled cucumbers before and it was so easy!
