for quick and easy salad preparation

Knowing how to dice tomato quickly and easily is a must for salad preparations. Follow my guide below to learn a few tricks of the trade.

Step 1

  1. Choose a firm tomato to dice with few blemishes.
  2. This tomato is organic.

Step 2

  1. Remove any labels.
  2. Wash your tomato under cold running water to remove any contaminants.

Step 3

  1. Dry the tomato with a clean towel or paper towels.

Step 4

  1. Place the tomato on a clean cutting board and have a sharp serrated knife handy.

Step 5

  1. Grab the stem and pull to remove it. If the stem won't pull out - don't worry - we'll cut it out later.
  2. Slice the tomato in half.

Step 6

  1. Now cut out the stem ends and discard them.
  2. You do not want the hard and bitter stem pieces in the tomato dice.

Step 7

  1. Lay the half flat side down, with the top and bottom to the left and right.

Step 8

  1. This is the beginning of the dice cut.
  2. Slice across the tomato in 1/4" slices.

Step 9

  1. Continue to slice for the entire half.

Step 10

  1. Turn this crosswise and keep it together.

Step 11

  1. Now cut across the slices to make a dice.

Step 12

  1. Notice the angle of my knife blade.

Step 13

  1. On both sides of the tomato, you will need to angle your knife towards the center of the tomato to get a more even dice.

Step 14

  1. Now your dice pieces are ready for a salad.

Have you ever wondered why bar rags and professional kitchens use white towels? It's because we don't want to chance any dye from colours leaching onto the produce or counters.

Now you will be able to dice tomato - just like the pro's.
