To cut a mango, place the mango on its side and cut a large slice about 1/2 and inch from the center on either side. Then score the mango by first cutting strips the long way, followed by the short way. You don’t have to cut all the way through the skin on the bottom, you can use a knife or even a spoon to scoop out the chunks of mango.
