Avocado Dice

To easily dice an avocado, insert a utility knife into the stem end. Slice the avocado in half lengthwise to the pit, turning the avocado while slicing. Remove the knife blade and twist the halves in opposite directions to pull apart. Press the knife blade into the pit, twisting the knife gently to pull the pit away from the avocado. Cut the avocado flesh in a crisscross fashion to dice it, then run a spoon underneath to scoop out the avocado pieces.
