Expert Tips

  • Kitchen scissors are great to have on hand. Besides snipping herbs, they are also good for cutting up chicken pieces and other kitchen tasks.
  • Cut a very thin slice off the bottom of each egg white half before filling to help the Mexican-style deviled eggs stay in place on the serving plate.
  • To finely dice avocado, cut in half and remove pit. Using large spoon, scoop flesh from skin. Place one half avocado cut side down on cutting board. Make horizontal cuts for desired thickness, then cut lengthwise into strips. Turn 90 degrees and cut again. Repeat with other half of avocado.
