How To Dice An Onion

My wife had trouble on how to dice an onion when we first met, and here is a trick I taught her to make it easier for her to work with onions.

The trick is to leave the root connected.

To dice an onion:

  • First cut the onion in half, do not cut off the root.
  • Peel off the outer skin.

  • Cut sections perpendicular to the root.
    • Be sure to NOT cut through the root.
