This simple hack for slicing cherry tomatoes will astound you

Got a knife, two lids, and some tomatoes? That's all you need.

Slicing cherry tomatoes individually can be kind of time-consuming. While we're never opposed to just eating them whole, sometimes you've got to slice into them. Here's a quick tip for halving handfuls of cherry tomatoes at a time, using a few things you probably have lying around your kitchen.

First, you need two lids from plastic containers. Set one on your counter, right side-up, and fill it with a single layer of tomatoes. Place the other on top, upside-down.

Hold the top lid to keep everything in place, and carefully slice through the tomatoes with a serrated knife.

And that's it: instantly halved cherry tomatoes. Now go enjoy the rest of tomato season.
