I started to make this recipe because it sounded good, but then, as I was making it, I realized it wasn't quite right. The ingredients call for 1 1/2 cups water, but the directions call for 1 cup water and 1/2 cup pineapple juice. I didn't have the pineapple juice, since it wasn't listed in the ingredients, I didn't buy it. I tried draining my canned pineapple juice, but didn't get anywhere near 1/2 a cup. I called a friend who makes a similar salad. She says hers calls for 3 cups of liquid. This one has 2. I decided to add the 3 just to be safe. Also, this recipe asks for the pineapple to be cooked. I decided not too, since it was neither fresh, nor frozen, I figured it wouldn't interfere with the jello setting up. It was a good recipe, once I had it figured out, but I'm glad I didn't just dive into it or ask one of the kids to do it or it may have not turned out well.
