There are a few tricks to making gelatin salads. First, be sure to completely dissolve the gelatin in the boiling liquid in the first step. Spoon up a small amount and make sure you can't see any grains of sugar or gelatin. And never use fresh or frozen pineapple, kiwi, or guava in gelatin salads; they will keep it from setting.
