Quick and Easy Tip: Cut 15 Cherry Tomatoes in Half At Once!

Big Girls, Small Kitchen

When I cut a bunch of tiny cherry tomatoes, sometimes I feel like Tom Hanks in the movie "Big" nibbling on an ear of baby corn in tiny bites, from one end to the other, just as one would eat a larger ear of corn—a little ridiculous! However, when you have to cut up a large batch of cherry tomatoes, Cara at Big Girls Small Kitchen has you covered with this smart tip!

Cara uses the flat lids from two pint-size plastic takeout containers and sandwiches a handful of cherry tomatoes between them. While pressing down on the top lid, she uses a serrated knife to slice between the containers. This allows her to cut 15 cherry tomatoes in the time it would usually take to slice one - genius! Check out Big Girls Small Kitchen to see her two step explanation with photos.
