Using a sharp knife, cut the tomatoes in half lengthwise. Remove the core. Scoop out the seeds. Slice the tomato into thin, 1 centimeter strips, and then into 1 centimeter cubes.

Cut the onion in half and remove the skin. Make long thin cuts, following the lines on the onion, but not all the way through the root. Cut across these cuts to dice finely.

Cut the green pepper in half and remove the seeds and pith. Dice finely.

Peel and cut around the core of the mango. Dice into 1 centimeter cubes.

Remove the leaves of the cilantro and chop finely, discarding the stems.
