Here's a super fast tip for slicing a pint of
cherry tomatoes. You'll need two identical rimmed plates. [SOUND] First,
you'll wanna set one plate face down on a work
surface. And you're gonna fill it with your cherry tomatoes.

directly on top of the tomatoes right side up. Hold
it firmly but gently in place. Now you're gonna need
a knife, I prefer a Chef's knife. And you're gonna
slice through the center of the tomatoes evenly. [BLANK_AUDIO]
