Green Watergate Salad for St. Patrick's Day

For St. Patrick's Day this year I plan on making Watergate Salad since it's made with pistachio pudding.  Beautiful green pudding!  What could be more perfect for our favorite green day.  I love any excuse to make this salad.  I don't eat it all the time but I just love the taste.

Can  (20 oz.) crushed pineapple in juice, undrained

Pkg.  (3.4 oz.) JELL-O Pistachio Flavor Instant Pudding
