Food hack: How to chop many small fruits and veggies with one cut

Useful for: Cutting small produce items like grapes and cherry tomatoes

What you need: serrated knife, flat surface like a wooden cutting board, lid for a large container or something like it,

What to do: Place your produce on a hard, flat surface, whether that's a plate or a wooden cutting board or even a medium-sized plastic lid — anything that will prevent them from rolling around the counter. Place the produce in a single layer, then top with a second surface, like the lid of a large leftovers container, and hold it gently with one hand. Use the other hand to run a serrated or very sharp knife through the fruit or vegetables, going horizontally through the two surfaces so the food is cut in half. When you remove the lid, most of the items should be cut into two pieces. It might take some practice to get them all cut evenly down the middle.
