How To Slice an Avocado

This is how you perfectly slice an avocado:

  • Remove the pit: Slice the avocado open vertically and remove the pit.
  • Slice the avocado inside the skin: Using just the tip of the knife, slice into the avocado flesh, making sure to not pierce the skin.
  • Scoop out the avocado: Gently work a spoon between the flesh and the skin of the avocado.
