Perfect the Dice
Yes, there is a right way to do it. Start by rinsing and removing any stems, and peeling vegetables if desired. When dealing with round vegetables, it’s a good idea to cut a thin slice from one side to create a flat surface, then using a sharp knife, cut the vegetable lengthwise into slices. Next, stack the slices and cut them lengthwise into strips, then line the sticks up and cut crosswise to produce neat little cubes. For small dice, aim for ¼ inch squares, ½ inch for medium and ¾ inch for large.
