8 Amazing Air Fryer Side Dishes


After writing our Air Fryer Snacks post, I realized that I had so many other recipes for using your air fryer that I had to do a side dish recipe roundup for you as well!

Using the Air Fryer saves me so much time in my kitchen.  I can toss in some quick snacks or add fun side dishes to my main dishes like Lobster Mushroom Mac N Cheese, make quick dippers for our Tofu Picadillo, make a whole meal out of our favorite side dishes.

Happy Cookin!

My husband LOVES fried pickles. A few years ago he ordered them at a local restaurant with friends while I was away from the table.  I came back and thought they were fried cheese and tossed one into my mouth. SURPRISE… not cheese!  LOL, I'll never do that again.
