How To Dice Avocados

Avocados are easy to open & remove the flesh. They may be diced any size you so choose. Stabilize a cutting board with a damp kitchen towel underneath then gather a paring knife & a spoon.

Carefully insert the paring knife into the top, center portion of the fruit resting the base on the cutting board. Run the knife lengthwise around the fruit using the seed as a guide ending where you began. Pick up the fruit & twist it open exposing the flesh. Carefully remove the seed with the tip of the paring knife pointing away from you. Slice the flesh lengthwise, then crosswise using the paring knife. Insert a spoon between the skin & the flesh of each half loosening it all the way around. Remove the diced avocado with the spoon. Toss in a little lime juice to prevent discoloration, if desired.
