How to Dice an Onion from

How I learned to dice an onion — and how I get such a small dice.

First, stand the onion half on it's side. Slice downwards but not all the way so that the onion holds together. Lay the onion down, inside down and then slice strips, again not all the across or the onion will come apart. Then, cut crosswise and it's a small dice. The end, you'll have to chop a few times to get them smaller.

The wider your slices are, the bigger your diced onion will be!
