Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 fresh bell pepper

Instructions

  1. Diced: Lay the bell pepper on its side on a cutting board.  Use a knife to slice off the very top (stem-end) and bottom of the bell pepper.  Run the knife around the inside of the flesh to cut away the core.  Discard the core.  Then dice the bell pepper into your desired size of pieces.
  2. Thinly-sliced: Lay the bell pepper on its side on a cutting board.  Use a knife to slice off the top (stem-end) of the bell pepper.  Then place the flat (cut-side) end of the bell pepper flat on the cutting board, and make four downward cuts, separating the pepper flesh from the white inner core.  Discard the core.  Then thinly slice the bell pepper into long strips.
  3. Rings: Lay the bell pepper on its side on a cutting board.  Use a knife to slice off the very top (stem-end) and bottom of the bell pepper.  Run the knife around the inside of the flesh to cut away the core.  Discard the core.  Lay the bell pepper on its side and thinly slice it into rings.
  4. Stuffed: Lay the bell pepper on its side on a cutting board.  Use a knife to slice off the top (stem-end) of the bell pepper. Run the knife around the inside of the flesh to hollow out the core.  Discard the core.
