This is the start of my onion chopping post otherwise known as How to Chop an Onion. I know. This is scintillating text so far.
Chopping an onion is one of those things that everyone has their own way of doing.
Some are hackers, some are whackers and some are very meticulous about it.
For dicing I used to just slice my onion and then kind of dance my knife around the slice until it was sufficiently diced. Sometimes I'd stack 2 or 3 together onion slices together to save on time. This rarely saved on time. Onion slices have a tendency to fall apart and slide off each other.
So several years ago I learned how to properly dice an onion. I saw it on some random cooking show.
And if you've seen a random cooking show in the last decade I assume you also know how to properly dice an onion. But in case you haven't or you'd like a refresher, I have for your viewing enjoyment today:

Sorry if the Blair Witch Boob Cam made you nauseous but I couldn't figure out another way to shoot the video. And yes. Those were my onion goggles. Get a pair. They'll change your life. Never cry a tear while chopping onions again. Just strap on your goggles and start cutting.
