Vintage Recipe: Copper Penny Salad

image

Here’s a recipe that certainly takes me back to when I was a kid. I remember my mom making this and having this salad served at the local church picnics.  The classic Copper Penny Salad. It’s actually very easy to make and uses items that you’ll have in your fridge and pantry.  So let’s start!

Start by slicing your carrots.  I used a mandolin, but I’m sure the side of a metal cheese grater will work also.

Once your carrots are sliced, cook them in a pot of salted water until tender and drain. Allow the carrots to cool. Tip: The carrots will continue to cook.  Be sure to either put them in a ice bath or run cold water over them otherwise you can have some seriously mushy carrots.

While the carrots are cooking, start making the dressing.  Combine the tomato soup, Worcester sauce, sugar and oil and mix well.  I used the blender to help incorporate the oil.

Once the carrots are cooled, dice your onion and green bell pepper.  In a large bowl combine all ingredients and mix well.

Combine vegetables with the dressing and mix well.  Add salt & pepper as needed. Let sit overnight.

Enjoy!
