What is your favorite way to enjoy a mango? I've heard of people eating them sliced when still slightly green drizzled with balsamic. Or sweet and ripe sliced over vanilla ice cream.
Any new, creative or unusual ways I haven't heard of before?
Diced with chile pepper, salt, and lime juice -- possibly combined with avocado, or avocado and red onion and tomato.
may not be very creative, but one of my favorite ways to eat a mango is with some Fage 0% yogurt. this is one of my breakfast staples.
Mango protein smoothie
Mango salsa - mango, red pepper, red onions, cilantro, jalapeno, olive oil, lime juice, orange juice, salt and pepper. On fish, tacos, rice & beans, in pasta with or without yogurt.
I never much liked fruit-meat combos. Then I tried this:
In a little oil, fry two sliced chicken breasts along with about 3 teaspoons of Jamaican Jerk seasoning powder. Medium heat, about 3 mins. stirring. Add 1 cup of coconut milk and simmer for 5 minutes. Add 1/2 to one whole (depending on size) mango, skinned and cubed to approx. 1/2". Simmer for 10 more minutes. Finish with lemon or lime juice and chopped cilantro. Serve with rice and salad.
I personally find that anything cooked in coconut milk requires extra salt. Bad bad bad!

Edit: By all means incorporate a sliced red chili at some stage if you like. It would probably look and taste good.
