How To Slice An Onion

posted in Vegetables and Beans by Kathy Maister

Once you have peeled an onion, slicing is a breeze! (Click here for my video on How to Chop, Mince and Dice an Onion)

When slicing an onion you first want to stabilize the onion. Sharp knives and rolling onions can be can be a potentially dangerous situation.

Slice a tiny bit off the fattest part of the onion. Now balance the onion on the small flat area you have created with this slice.

This will stop the onion from rolling around on you.

Holding the onion firmly, start making slices from the top end to the root end.

You can make the slices as thin or as thick as you choose!

Sliced onions are great on salads, particularly red ones! Or to perk up your hamburgers, you could fry them in just a bit of olive oil, add some salt and pepper, and you’ve got yourself a real treat!
