For some recipes, especially home made salsa, guacamole and the Indian bhel puri, I prefer to chop onions by hand. It provides a different texture and crunch versus using the electrical food chopper. The one downside is the tears.

Could you share your tricks to prevent tears when you chop onions?
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend!
