Notes

How to cut an avocado?

Don't be worried it's far easier than you think. Place the avocado upright and you'll notice it has a sort of bulb shape. Slice the avocado down the long way. About half way you'll hit the seed so cut around that. Now, on the cut line is done give the avocado a simple twist to separate the two pieces. Take the knife and with a light swing at the seed. Now, you can simply twist the knife to remove the seed. Take a butter knife not a shape one and cut the cubes while it's still in the outside shell. Lastly, take a spoon and dig all the cut cubes out. Thats's it!
You can also use cubed avocados that are frozen as well. Simply thaw them and serve!
