How to Slice and Dice Carrots
Learn how to use your chef's knife to efficiently slice and dice carrots.
To slice a carrot, first cut the root end off and peel it, if desired. Slice the carrot crosswise into three equal pieces. Using one piece at a time, cut it into thin strips. To dice the carrot, turn the strips sideways so that they’re at a right angle to the blade, and cut the strips into small cubes.
