Kraft Kitchens Tips

Substitute 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper for the ground black pepper to add spicy heat.
How to Slice Tomatoes
To easily slice a tomato, hold tomato so that the stem end faces out. Cut a thin slice off the stem end with a sharp chef's knife or serrated knife. Discard the trimmed end. Cut the tomato into slices of the desired thickness. Tomatoes cut this way will keep their juice better than those sliced vertically (from top to bottom).
