This is one of my favorite recipes and a great one to serve for a gathering.

Copper Pennies

2 lbs. carrots, peeled, sliced and cooked until barely tender, drain. (Pretty small slices, not big)

1 small green pepper, thinly sliced

1 medium onion, thinly sliced


10.5 oz. can tomato soup

1/2 cup oil

3/4 cup cider vinegar

1 cup sugar

1 tsp. prepared mustard (powder)

1 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce

1 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

Blend all the dressing ingredients together and pour over cooked carrots. Let marinate.

Put in refrigerator with cover and turn over after about two days and then again.

Will keep in the refrigerator for 2 weeks.
