Cutting Avocado Neatly

Sometimes you need prettier pieces of avocado—here’s the best way to cube it.

Avocado is one of my favorite foods, and I’m far from alone.  Cute little neat chunks make a dish look extra special.  (Obviously this isn’t of particular interest if you are making guacamole or another type of avocado dip like Avocado Pesto Dip or Creamy Avocado Dip or a sauce, like the one for Mexican Pizza with Avocado Crema.

But it is of interest if you want nice unmushy cubes.  Like, for instance if you are making these dishes:

Chili Rubbed Flank Steak with Corn, Tomato and Avocado Salad

Salmon, Arugula, and Avocado Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette

Avocado And Cannellini Bean Crostini With Gremolata

or even if you want a bowl of avocado to top a great chili, like:

Beef, Black Bean and Jalapeno Chili

Slow Cooker Chicken Chili

Buffalo Chicken and White Bean Chili

Game Day Ground Beef Chili

Barbacoa Beef Chili

Turkey or Chicken Chili
