How to Cut a Mango
Cut away sides from pit (stand the mango up and cut from the top of the mango, down one side of the pit) Repeat with the other side, you should end up with three pieces.
Take a mango half and slice crosswise cuts in it (try not to cut through the peel). Turn mango half inside so that the cut segments stick out.
