Copper Penny Salad

Thanks for posting this recipe. I believe it's origins are in the Amish/Mennonite communities. I have made this for years and it is a fabulous side dish. If you/your family do not like green peppers, try using red or yellow bell pepper instead. (01/16/2009)

Copper Penny Salad

This is a fabulous side dish. I have been making this for several years and believe it originates from the Amish/Mennonite communities. Try using a red or yellow bell pepper if the green ones are too strong for your tastes. (01/16/2009)
