It is no new thing that a lot of people have been wondering why the cookbook photo of a dish looks so perfect compared to what you just served. A lot of people get disappointed by this even after they have clearly followed the recipe to the letter.
But one thing we all have to know is that many of those beautiful dishes comes from how the components are sliced especially when dishes like salads and vegetables. There are several methods on how to do it right and these are some of them:
Tomato as an example needs to be sliced in an horizontal shape into quarters as opposed to halved across its belt. This process will upgrade the taste of your salad and give you the exact type of dish you’ve always wanted.
Also, eating a properly sliced snow pea has the same effect. You only need to slice them into strips lengthwise and not into graceless squares. This might look odd in the beginning because it’s a different way from how you’ve been doing it before. But if you follow this process, then you will sure get that taste you’ve always desire.
When it comes to cucumbers and vegetables, they should be sliced thin to the point of translucent. These items usually dominate whatever forkful they find themselves in if they are thicker. You have to halve the entire vegetable before slicing it.
When it comes to slicing the long skinny things like the scallions and carrots, you only need to slice on a board. This way you have to make sure your knife is angled but not parallel with the vegetable you are cutting.
If you only want to learn one thing from this post then make sure it how to super slice an avocado. When you slice them in the best way, it will get people asking you a lot of questions like “who did this?”, “how did you make this?” and so on. A lot of people in the past usually slice the flesh right in the shell in a grid pattern but this is not the best way to slice your avocado. To properly do this, you need to halve your avocado the normal way and peel of the skin. After this, you can then slice the half and finally cut it side-down into thin strips.
