Want to know the easiest way to neatly dice an avocado? After cutting it in half and removing the pit, cut deep parallel lines across the inside, then turn the avocado in the other direction and cut deep parallel lines in this direction also (making like a checker board of deep cuts.) Take a regular sized spoon and slide it deep between the outer skin and the soft part … then scoop out your neatly diced avocado. Makes beautiful salads!
