Copper Pennies

Marsha Gardner


What a colorful dish to add to any table. My grandmother would love it because it has tomato soup in it and I love it because it is another way to get kids to eat their vegetables.

This salad is very popular at pot luck dinners and I make if for Easter every year. It is refreshing.
