Slice tomato

This cooking skill is all about how to slice tomato.  Slice tomato is used in many recipes, particularly salads and as a garnish.  You can vary the size of tomato slice as required in the recipe or how you plan to use the tomato.

  1. Cut your tomato in half from top to bottom.
  2. Then, using a knife or, better still, a teaspoon, scrape out all the seeds to leave you with two halves of empty tomato.
  3. Push the tomato flat on your board and slice it from top to bottom.  The number of cuts you make will depend on how fine you want your slices.
