Step 4: Dissolve gelatin

Dissolve the gelatin in a half-cup of cold water and it add to the mixture.

Step 5: Let it set

Let the mixture sit and cool until it begins to set, about 30 to 45 minutes.

Add the pineapple, mandarin oranges, grapes, and salt and pour the mixture into a 2-quart mold.

Step 7: Refrigerate

Refrigerate for a few hours, or until the mold is set.
