How to Slice a Mango
- The center of the mango is tough. You want the soft sides known as the “cheeks”
- Place the mango on your cutting board.
- Find the “notch” along the center. This is the tough center.
- Cut the “cheeks” left and right of the notch.
- Lay cheeks on your cutting board and slice vertically and horizontally to create squares being careful not to pierce the skin.
- Take your knife and run it along the skin and the fruit to cut the fruit away from the skin.
