What is a Dice?

Similar to the French brunoise cut, a dice is a simple knife cut in which food is divided into little cubes. This is done to make uniformly sized pieces for even cooking and for presentational reasons. Dicing facilitates more consistent taste and texture distribution across a meal and reduces cooking time.

Best Knife for Cutting Tomato

Unexpectedly, the serrated knife we use to cut bread is the perfect knife for slicing tomatoes. Bread and tomatoes both have hard exteriors and soft interiors. This is why it makes sense that slicing the tomato skin with a serrated knife works effectively to remove it without crushing the delicate interior.

How to Dice a Tomato in Five Steps

1. Trim off the stem and place the tomato on its side. 

2. Rotate the tomato top-side up and cut off the sides of the tomato, leaving the core.

3. Cut off the two remaining edges around the core by placing the core piece flat-side down on the cutting board. Throw away the core.

4. Make vertical, evenly spaced slices from each tomato piece. Choose to cut thick or thin strips based on how small or large you want the dice to be.

5. Rotate tomato slices 90 degrees and slice in the opposite direction creating a dice.

How to Seed a Tomato Before Dicing

Why do tomatoes need to be seeded? The additional liquid found in tomato seeds and the gel-like substance that surrounds them can change the texture of a dish. The majority of a tomato’s flavor is found in the red flesh rather than the seeds, so going the extra mile to remove the seeds has no negative effects.

First, cut your tomatoes in half so that you can easily seed them. Use a finger or tiny knife to scoop out the seed sacs and any extra liquid while you hold the tomato over a basin and gently squeeze out the seeds. Now that nothing is left, you have the ideal canvas to start slicing tomatoes. Try some diced tomato in this Tex-Mex Rice Bake.
