How To Make A Sombrero Salad

You will need:

1 medium Pineapple, cut in wedges: reserve top
1/2 small watermelon

1/2 honeydew melon
Coconut Bananas ( see recipe below)
1 to 2 pints strawberries
Mint sprigs 
Green and purple grapes
Fluffy Fruit Dressing, if desired (see recipe below)

Sombero Salad Diagram 1 (1) It will be easier to move the filled sombrero if you place it on a platter before filling it with fruit. Attach the pineapple leaves to the top of the sombrero with turkey lacers or metal skewers pushing them down through the leaves and sombrero.

(2) After lining the brim of the sombrero with plastic wrap, arrange the fruit neatly in the brim. Add sprigs of mint for garnish. Pin small clusters of grapes around the top of the sombrero with straight pins.

Place sombrero on a platter. Secure the top of the pineapple into the peak of the sombrero with skewers or turkey lacers. Line the base of a sombrero with plastic wrap. Cut watermelon, cantaloupe and honeydew melon in to serving-size pieces. A fluted French fry cutter works exceptionally well. Place fruit attractively around the sombrero's base. Garnish with sprigs of Mint. Using straight pins, hang small clusters of grapes at random from top of sombrero. If your refrigerator can accommodate it, assemble the salad a day ahead. Cover with damp paper towels and plastic wrap. Serve with Fluffy Fruit Dressing if desired - Makes 8 servings.

1/3 cup sugar
