Peeling Mangoes: The skin of a mango is tough and not meant to be eaten. But peeling and pitting the fruit can be a challenge. For best results, cut the mango in half, working around the pit. Place a half on the cutting board flesh-side up and score 1/4-inch squares in the flesh. Do no cut through the peel. Turn the half inside out and cut the fruit away from the skin with your knife.
Fresh Homemade Mango Salsa Pizza: If you have a healthy pizza crust recipe, use Fresh Homemade Mango Salsa as a topping all by itself. Roll out dough and press into the baking pan. Place in the oven and cook about 15 minutes or according to your recipe. Take the pizza crust out of the oven and spread with Fresh Homemade Mango Salsa. Place the pizza back into the oven and bake until the toppings are hot and the crust is browned, about 5 to 10 minutes. Cut the pizza into even slices and serve immediately. Yum!!
