I have game nights pretty regularly these days and we have taken it up a notch with this awesome salsa. Thanks Mike!
Easiest way to cube avocado? In the skin! With a sharp knife, cut around the pit and twist the two halves apart. Hold the half with the pit in your non-dominate hand and the knife in your dominate hand; aim carefully and whack the pit with the knife. It should lodge in the pit (and not chop off your fingers). With a quick twist of your knife, the pit should pop right out. Pit suck? You probably had an under-ripe avocado - let it get a bit softer next time.
For the cubes - hold the avocado half in one hand and score the avocado with a knife - make several slices in one direction and then at 90 degree angles (picture a giant tic-tac-toe board). Use a spoon so scoop out the cubes and your work is done!
