Dicing onions Posted on March 30, 2014 by Dory I learned this as a little kid watching “The Galloping Gourmet” on TV. Cutting an onion the easy way. 1. Cut in half from stem to stern, actually root to what would be the leafy end 2.Peel the half, (it’s easy to peel half an onion) 3. Make cuts from the leafy end nearly to the root end, the root will hold the onion together for you. When you are at the sides angle the knife so you are cutting towards the center, making wedges Now cut across, Look. Little squares!
