2. Cut off the bottom of the mango so you can see where the long, flat pit is at. Slice the “cheeks” of the mango off the pit.

4. Cut 1 inch cubes into the slices, being careful not to cut all the way through the skin. Run your knife underneath the cubes.

Buying tip: Look for a mango that is a combination of red, orange and yellow with some green. The more green, the less ripe the fruit it. Give the mango a little squeeze with your thumb – it if gives a little, it should be ripe enough to eat!
