Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe tomato

Instructions

  1. To slice a tomato: Place the tomato on its side. Using a large serrated knife, slice off the top of the tomato. Then cut the tomato into thin slices.
  2. To cut tomato wedges: Using a large serrated knife, cut the tomato in half. Then cut it again to make quarters. You can cut smaller wedges by cutting the quarters down the center.
  3. To dice a tomato (seeds in): Start with the tomato slices from Step 1. Cut them into thin strips, then turn the strips and cut crosswise into a dice.
  4. To dice a tomato (core and seeds out): Start with the tomato wedges from Step 2 (quarters are easiest). Cut out the core and seeds from each wedge by sliding underneath them with the knife. Cut the remaining tomato flesh into strips, then turn the strips and cut crosswise into a dice.
