Start by slicing your mango. Mangos can be tricky to cut so here are the steps:
Cut the sides away from the pit: (the pit is flatish, oblong shaped in the center of the mango). Hold the mango with one hand, stand it with the steam facing up. Now cut the widest flatest parts off the sides of the mango. Position the knife adjacent to the center of the steam, cutting along the side of the pit. This is where most of the flesh will be.
Now cut off the smaller two sides of the mango.
Then its time to score the mango. You do this making long slits in the flesh of the mango with your knife, cutting throught he flesh but not through the skin of the mango.
Score the mango lenghtwise and then make perpendicular lines to create a grid. Spacing your cuts a few centimeters apart from each other.
Now you should be able to flatten the mango out on your cuting board, skin side down with little cubes of mango flesh sticking up, looking sort of like a hedgehog. Run your kinfe along the skin, between the skin and under the flesh of the mango. This will release the mago, creating little cubes.
Place your cubed Mango in a bowl.
Now dice you remaining ingredinets: shallot, jalapeno, red bell pepper, and avocado. Once diced add them to your bowl with the mango.
Cut you lime in half, then squeeze the juice from both halfs of lime over your bowl of mango. Then toss your ingredients together.
Finish with a sprinkle of cilantro and enjoy!
