Reviews for Pineapple Gelatin Salad
"Very refreshing on a hot summer day!"
"I messed up the first time I made this and used a small box of gelatin, so it didn't congeal as it should have. So I just mixed everything together. :) Had to eat it from a bowl, but was still good. I did it right the next time. Very good. We have had it several times since."
