The reason it is called a copper penny salad is because of the tomato soup in the recipe. It is also referred to as copper pennies. It turns the bright orange carrots a darker orange-copper color.  The green pepper and onion also add a nice contrast.

You get a savory nice tang from the mustard, vinegar, and Worcestershire sauce and it marinates into the cooked carrots quite well.
