Cutting onions can be a bit of a chore. Not only do you need to worry about your eyes watering, but sometimes getting the most out of the onion can be tricky – especially if you’re aiming for a finely diced onion. This trick makes it a breeze! Start by peeling the onion and chopping it in half. Hold one end of the first half and make 4-5 vertical slits. Then, turn the onion and start slicing. You’ll get a perfectly diced onion every time!
Cherry tomatoes are great on salads, in pasta, and a ton of other dishes. They can be a pain to have to cut each on in half individually, however. Lucky for you, we have a genius solution for cutting multiple tomatoes, therefore saving you time when prepping your meal. Grab two Tupperware lids, and place a handful of tomatoes on one before placing the second lid on top. Press the top lid down slightly to hold the tomatoes in place, but don’t press down too hard and squish the tomatoes! With the tomatoes secure between the two lids, take a knife and slice through the middle of the tomatoes.
