How to Dice onions and shallots
Learn how to dice any kind of onion or shallot. First cut the ends off of the onion, being sure to remove only a little bit of the root end. This is so the onion stays together when chopping. Make vertical cuts in the onion starting from the opposite end of the core. Then make horizontal cuts only cutting 3/4 of the way through. Then cut across to dice the onion.
