Expert Tips

To easily dice avocados, cut lengthwise around the avocado and twist to separate halves. Hold the half with the pit in one hand. Tap pit firmly with edge of sharp knife and twist to remove pit. Score avocado flesh lengthwise and crosswise with tip of knife, making little cubes. Scoop out with a spoon.

The acidic nature of lime juice prevents the avocado from darkening.
