Say goodbye to soggy crushed tomatoes for good, and learn how to cut a tomato three ways for the perfect healthy addition to salads, sandwiches, and more!
Place the tomato on its side on top of the cutting board so the stem is facing outward. Slice off the top of the tomato, removing the stem.
Working from the sliced end, cut parallel strips down the tomato, creating slices.
Slice the tomato using the method before. Then, stack the tomato slices on the cutting board, and slice them into thin strips. Rotate the cutting board, and cut thin strips in the opposite direction.
Place the tomato on the cutting board with the stem facing up. Slice the tomato in half starting from the stem and moving toward the bottom.
Flip one half of the tomato over, and cut it in half again moving from the stem to the bottom. Repeat with the second half.
Store cut tomatoes in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
