Early in my marriage, we were invited to dinner with some friends. I had met the hostess wife but we were not close friends, though we had friends in common - hence the invitation.
It was a nice dinner, good food, good company. Very enjoyable. The couple lived in Chandler while we lived in Phoenix, about a half hour drive - fairly normal for Arizona.
The husband, who I had not met before, had made a dessert that I loved, so I asked for the recipe. He did not know a name for the dessert, so I named it after him - Mubeen Salad.
It is a beautiful dessert for the warm summer months - cool and refreshing. Not the healthiest choice, but then it is dessert, so I never consider dessert as needing to be healthy as we don't have dessert all the time.
1 large tub Whip Cream
1 can condense milk
1 can mandarin oranges, crushed & drained (alternatively peaches or pineapple)
1/2 cup nuts, pecans or almonds
Combine all ingredients
Single fruit or combined fruits are good
I prefer almonds, slivered, but my husband loves pecans, pieces
