Here is a step-by-step guide on how to cut a mango:

  1. Wash the mango thoroughly under running water.
  2. Place the mango on a cutting board and use a sharp knife to cut it in half lengthwise, following the pit.
  3. Discard the pit.
  4. Use a paring knife to cut the flesh of the mango away from the skin. You can also use a spoon to scoop out the flesh.
  5. Dice the mango flesh into small cubes or slice it into thin strips.

Here are some additional tips:

  • If the mango is very ripe, you may want to peel it before cutting it. To do this, use a vegetable peeler to remove the skin from the mango.
  • If the mango is not very ripe, you may want to cut it into slices and then remove the skin from each slice.
  • Be careful not to cut yourself on the mango pit. The pit is sharp and can be difficult to remove.
