Select a ripe avocado.
When you are choosing an avocado, make sure that it is ripe. A ripe avocado will be slightly soft to the touch and will yield to gentle pressure. If the avocado is hard, it is not yet ripe and will not be as flavorful. If the avocado is mushy, it is overripe and may not taste as good.
When you are ready to slice the avocado, start by cutting it in half lengthwise. This can be done by slicing through the stem end and then gently twisting the two halves apart. Once the avocado is in two halves, remove the pit by gently striking it with a knife and then twisting to loosen it from the fruit.
Once the pit has been removed, you can begin slicing the avocado into thin slices. Begin by making lengthwise cuts and then turn the avocado so that you can make crosswise cuts. You can also make diced cuts by first slicing lengthwise and then crosswise and then making diagonal cuts.
Cut the avocado in half lengthwise.
To cut an avocado into slices, start by cutting the avocado in half lengthwise. Then, use a spoon to scoop out the pit and any of the dark green flesh attached to it. Next, score the flesh of each avocado half with a knife, being careful not to cut through the skin. Finally, use a spoon to scoop the flesh out of each half and then cut it into slices.
Remove the pit from the avocado.
The first step is to remove the pit from the avocado. You can do this by slicing the avocado in half lengthwise and then twisting it to separate the two halves. Once you have the pit removed, you can then proceed to slicing the avocado into slices.
To do this, you will want to start by slicing the avocado half that does not have the pit in it lengthwise. Once you have made a few lengthwise slices, you can then begin to slice the avocado into thinner crosswise slices. The thickness of the slices is really up to you and will depend on what you are using them for.
Once you have your avocado sliced, you can then go ahead and remove the skin if you like. The skin should peel off fairly easily, but if it does not, you can always use a spoon to help scoop it off.
Score the flesh of the avocado.
Using a sharp knife score the flesh of the avocado length-wise and width-wise, being careful not to cut through the skin. You should have a grid of about 1/2-inch squares.
With your fingers, gently twist and pull the avocado apart into slices.
Cut the avocado into slices.
To cut an avocado into slices:
1. Start with a ripe avocado. An unripe avocado will be hard to cut and an overripe avocado will be mushy.
2. Cut the avocado in half lengthwise, then twist the halves to separate them.
3. Remove the pit from one half of the avocado by either scooping it out with a spoon or stabbing it with a knife and twisting to release it.
4. Score the flesh of the avocado half with a knife, making lengthwise cuts without cutting through the skin.
5. Use a spoon to scoop out the avocado slices.
