Before you start to cut anything, you need to make sure you have a secure work surface. A cutting board that isn’t secured can easily move around, making it extremely dangerous and almost impossible to cut quickly and accurately.
To secure your station, simply wet a kitchen towel or side towel and wring out any excess water. Lay the towel on top of your counter top and place your cutting board squarely on top of the towel. This will keep your cutting board secure while doing your prep.
