*How to peel and slice a mango: Slice each side of mango vertically along seed to give two halves, and pull apart. Hold one mango halfpeel side down and score fruit down to peel (but not through it) in a tic-tac-toe fashion. Hold scored poportion with both hands and bend peel backward so that diamond-cut cubes are exposed. Cut cubes off peel, then remove any remaining fruit clinging to seed.
