Cut the avocado into two long halves, by running your knife all the way around the avocado.

Then, pull the two halves apart.

Whack the pit (carefully) with your chef's knife, and twist the knife to get the pit out.

Put the cut side of the avocado down and slice each half lengthwise so you have four pieces.

Starting from the top, peel the skin back gently ...

... until it's all off.

Wipe off the outside with a paper towel if you want it extra smooth ...

... and slice as needed.

Flatten with your fingers to spread slices.
