Print this recipe
Mangos are known for their sweet taste and high vitamin content, but the odd-shaped fruits are also famous for being a bit "cheeky" and difficult to cut. Dani Spies from Clean & Delicious shows how to get the perfect mango cubed or diced cut while safely maneuvering the wobbly mango.
Part of Spies' success is identifying the main "meaty" parts of the fruits - two mango cheeks, as well as two thinner mango "fingers." Once you know where you're trying to cut, it's easier to stabilize the fruit. From there, you're ready to incorporate this South Asian sweetness into all kinds of recipes.

Food & Wine suggest looking to mangos to add variety and sweetness to everything from salsa, sangrias, and salads to smoothies. The magazine also suggests combining this fruit, which is the national fruit of India, Pakistan, and the Philippines, with curries and savory spices.
If flavor alone isn't enough to excite you, consider the high nutritional value of mangos. According to Health Impact News, mangos pack a large number of antioxidants in each serving, including quercetin, isoquercitrin, astragalin, fisetin, gallic acid, and methylgallat. Many of these antioxidants are noted cancer fighters in the scientific community.
Stop avoiding mangos for their perceived difficulty and add them to your menus. Don't forget to share these great tips with friends!
