Kitchen Tip Tuesdays: Easy no-mess diced avocado
I love fresh creamy diced avocado on my taco salad! I can't remember where I first heard about this easy no-mess avocado dicing, but thought I'd share for those who haven't seen it before.
My delicious taco salad this evening! The taco meat and beans were from the freezer, making this a very easy meal.
Step 1: Slice the avocado in half length-wise. There is a pit inside, so it will be like cutting a peach in half... slice around the pit.
Step 2: Twist the avocado gently to open. One side will have the pit still attached.
Step 3: (Carefully) pop a sharp knife onto the avocado pit, so it enters the pit without bruising the avocado.
Step 4: Twist the knife to remove the pit.
Step 5: Gently slice the avocado while still inside its skin.
Step 6: Gently slice the avocado in the other direction to make diced avocado.
Step 7: Scoop the diced avocado out of the shell with a large spoon (not a knife like I did in this picture).
Enjoy on your favorite salad! Yummy! :)
Rachel submitted a kitchen tip on dicing avocados a couple weeks ago, which basically says the same thing I just did... :)
