Romaine with Roast Beef and Mango

A ripe mango is firm with some give. Before slicing, peel with a vegetable peeler or paring knife. Place peeled mango on its narrow side and, using a sharp knife, cut to each side of the pit, slicing off as much flesh as possible. Reserve the pit for its juice. Slice the mango crosswise, not lengthwise.
