A delicious crunchy snack that is packed with nutrients and can be served as an appetizer or side dish, try these air-fried cucumbers for your next event or social gathering.
Our cucumber plants have been growing a lot of large cucumbers very fast. I almost think my husband put down way too many seeds because we are getting five large ones a day. However, it was time to be creative.
We were pleasantly surprised by how delicious cucumbers were when they came out of the air fryer. You can still top them with Ranch dressing or even Tzatziki sauce, but even without a dressing, they are really tasty yet filling.
