How to julienne and dice carrots



Cut the ends off the carrot

Peel or scrub a carrot then cut the ends off.

Cut in half

Cut the carrot in half crosswise with a sharp knife

Slice down the center

Take each carrot half and slice lengthwise down the center.

Cut into flat rectangular pieces

Place each carrot piece cut-side down and slice into four flat rectangular pieces.

Cut into julienned carrot pieces

Take each of those pieces and slice into thirds, thus creating julienned (matchstick shaped) carrot pieces.

Dicing the carrot

To dice the carrot simply gather up 4 or 5 julienned carrot pieces and slice them into small squares.
