To peel and finely dice a mango, use the Paring Knife to cut thin slices from both ends of the fruit. Stand fruit upright, stem end down, on Cutting Board. Using Utility Knife, carefully cut off peel from top to bottom. Slice off flesh alongside the large, flat pit; finely dice flesh.
If desired, 1 cup finely diced fresh or canned peaches can be substituted for the mango.
