Today I’m going to share just a quick little tip that has changed my world. It has only been recently that I have decided I like avocado. As long as I can remember I have liked guacamole but have really struggled with eating avocados. That all changed when I learned this little tip. Whether you want to cut an avocado into slices, for something like a sandwich or an omelet, or chunks for salsa, these same steps apply. I hope this revolutionizes avocados for you too!
- Step 1
Wash avocado. Using a large knife cut avocado in half and remove pit.
- Step 2
For thin slices: With pit removed, lay avocado face up. Slice avocado from end to end using the tip of the knife, cutting to the peel but not through it, every 1/8″-1/4″.
For chunks:With pit removed, lay avocado face up. Slice avocado from end to end using the tip of the knife, cutting to the peel but not through it, every 1/4″-1/2″. Turn avocado and cut side to side following the same manner making a checkerboard pattern.
- Step 3
Push on the outer peel of the avocado to turn it inside out. This will loosen the pieces you have just cut and they should pop right out.
