Front of the recipe card for Carrot Copper Penny Salad.

There is a notation that the recipe is from Mary Fries.

I haven’t been able to identify who Mary Fries was or how she knew the owner of the recipe box.

Go retro at your next picnic by taking this recipe for a Carrot Copper Penny Salad.

Make it a few days before so the salad marinates well and the carrots are nice and tangy.
