Air-Fried Cucumbers Are An Unexpectedly Delicious Snack
By Riya Anne Polcastro
Cucumbers are not usually fried, but if you throw them in an air fryer, you'll have a quick and tasty snack. There are many ways you can enjoy air-fried cucumber.
For a simple snack, air fry your sliced cucumber with oil, salt, and pepper. You can also add dill, ranch mix, cajun seasoning, cayenne pepper, and garlic, onion, or chili powder.
You could cut them a little thicker for a medallion style or into spears, then dredge them in batter and coat them in seasoned breadcrumbs or cornmeal.
For cucumber chips, set your air fryer to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and let them cook for about ten minutes, flipping halfway through.
If you cut your cucumbers into spears, they will need a little more heat. Cook them at 385 degrees Fahrenheit, and they will likely be done around the six-minute mark.
