I recently wrote a post for mom.me, sharing my favorite kitchen hacks – many of which you’ve seen here! – and it reminded me of a couple more I have up my sleeve!
Because you never slice just one or two grape tomatoes, amiright?
Here’s what you do:
Place as many tomatoes as will fit in a single layer in the lid of a deli/take-out container. Place another lid on top.
Place one hand gently but firmly on top of the stack, to keep things from moving around. Then, using a long serrated knife and a sawing motion, slice the tomatoes in half.
Voila! You’ve just made short work of a pesky task!
This works equally well on cherry tomatoes, and if you’re still slicing grapes for your littles, that’ll work too.
