Cook's Tips: To peel a mango, use the Santoku Knife to cut off top and bottom of fruit. Stand fruit upright, stem end down, on Cutting Board. Carefully cut off peel from top to bottom. Rub the top of the mango with your thumb to determine the direction of the large, flat pit. Slice off flesh alongside the pit. Cut flesh into cubes.

Belgian endive is a small cigar-shaped head of white, tightly packed leaves with yellow tips. It becomes bitter when exposed to light, so it is best wrapped in a damp paper towel, then placed in a resealable plastic bag and refrigerated for no longer than a day.
