Mix water and jello together. Cool. Add remaining ingredients that have been blended together. Refrigerate until set in 9 x 9 inch pan or 8-cup mold. (To add a little more holiday flair, add chopped apples and celery.) If you drain your pineapple in primary preparation, you could use 1 cup juice in place of water in Jello mixture. Chill until jelled.
