Uncle Sam's Salad Bowl

I picked up this Uncle Sam hat in the dollar store. They had matching ice buckets, so it dawned on me that putting the two items together would make a nice presentation for the Fourth of July!


  • Uncle Sam hat
  • plastic ice bucket
  • large plastic zipper bag
  • salad ingredients (bagged spring mix, strawberries, white onion rings, crumbled blue cheese, bottled strawberry dressing (I used Brianna's).

You may add grilled shrimp or chicken to make it a main dish salad.


Place ice in plastic bag. Place in bottom of hat. Place ice bucket on top and fill with salad of your choice (tossed, fruit, Jello, potato, etc.) or ice.
