  1. Place the carrots in a saucepan with enough lightly salted water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until almost done, about 5 minutes depending on how thick you slice them. Drain, and transfer to a large bowl. Add the bell pepper and onion to the bowl with the carrots.
  2. While the carrots are cooking, combine the vinegar, oil, tomato soup and sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, and cook for 1 minute. Pour the hot dressing over the vegetables. Serve immediately, or store in the refrigerator in a covered container and serve within 1 week.

I just made this recipe from directions given to me by my mother-in-law and was going to post it when I saw this. We call this recipe "copper pennies" and it's always a hit. These carrots stay good for up to a month in the fridge. The only modification in my recipe is it only calls for 1/2 cup sugar and a dash of worchester sauce.

Tastes good but the recipe is huge for me. Most of it was wasted because it wasn't something we wanted a bunch of times. Lasts well in the 'fridge though.

Made this for Easter dinner. My daughter and I LOVED it. Unfortunately, my guests didn't. It really is a matter of taste though. Some people just don't like vinegar-y or pickle-y tastes. The tomato soup, I thought, really gave it a nice subtle flavor. If you use Splenda instead of sugar, it's a great diet recipe to snack on.

This is the first recipe where I was so impressed I had to rate it. I have enjoyed so many recipes from Allrecipe. This time around I was looking for a recipe using cooked carrots that my husband might enjoy. This was fantastic. Have you ever tried to can this?

I love this recipe. I am grateful I found it again..I made this several years ago and everybody loved it. I lost the recipe, and have a request to bring them to a potlock for the 4th of July....Thank you for having it!!

I have been making this for years during the holidays. I use canned carrots as a time saver. I always get compliments.

Really good....made it for my daughter's baptism luncheon, went over well. Easy and can be made several days in advance, so great for parties. We served this cold.
