To dice a mango, hold it upright on a cutting board with a narrow side facing you. Using a large knife, cut off 1 "face" (the flat side) of the fruit. Repeat on the other flat side. Score the flesh into squares and push each half inside out so it looks like a hedgehog. Lay your knife flat and cut off each square.
