Expert Tips

  • Want to know how to dice a mango like a pro? First, stand the mango stem-end down and hold in place. Look for two wide sides or “cheeks.” Starting at top, place knife about 1/4 inch from widest center line and cut down through mango, cutting around flat seed in center of fruit. Repeat with opposite remaining wide side. Cut the flesh of the wide sides by slicing them in a cross-hatch pattern, making sure not to cut through to the skin. To remove your mango pieces, push the skin inside-out so the cut mango pieces fan out, then cut the pieces free from skin. Cut two remaining narrow sides from pit by cutting around pit. Peel and cut the mango pieces.
  • Save even more prep time by purchasing preshredded cabbage.
