2. Cut a small slice off top. Starting at the top of onion and on one side make a cut downward toward root end, stopping 1/8th inch from bottom.

3. Make additional cuts 1/8 inch from first until there are cuts completely across top of onion.

4. Turn onion 1/4 turn so slices are horizontal to you.
