Tip of the Week: A Faster, Easier Way to Slice Tomatoes

Prep time shouldn't be so hard!

Need to halve a bunch of tomatoes, grapes, or pitted olives?

 

Cut down on prep time with this ingenious tip! Sandwich medium-sized tomatoes between two small, identical plates. With one hand, gently press down on the top plate to steady the tomatoes. Using a sharp knife in your other hand, slice the tomatoes across the gap between the plates. For smaller items like grapes, olives, and cherry tomatoes, use two matching lids from plastic take-out containers instead of plates. This method works best when your fruits are uniform in size.
