Every year my husband and I go to the Irish parade here in town. One of the things thrown from the floats are carrots, and we usually catch a lot. So I looked for a new way to have carrots and I began searching for copper penny salad, but most of those recipes cooked the carrots and had tomato soup in it. Here is my version of copper penny salad, and it was quite a hit at dinner.
