    Since spring is here, I thought I would repeat some of the gelatin salad recipes I have previously printed in this column, plus add a new one that will also be delightful to serve for all those Derby festivities coming soon. 

    I was delighted to try it at our condo Easter dinner. It is delicious, and I was so honored to be given the recipe to share with you. 

    The first two recipes are reprints and the newest recipe is the very last one, but not the least because it fits so well with these other lovely gelatin salads or desserts.

    He’ll balk at sitting in a dunk tank during student celebrations, as some colleagues at Cleveland State University have done.

    And he wouldn’t be too excited about taking a quiz, as NKU President Jim Votruba did this year when he was replaced by a student as “president for a day.”
