What kind of AirFryer do I need?
People are falling in love with Air Fryers. I personally got mine as a Christmas gift from my mom. Thanks Mom!
I have the Power Air Fryer XL which was originally purchased from Kohls but is now available on Amazon.
The air fryer is designed to give food the crunch and crisp that you would get when you deep fry food, but without the oil.
You are cooking with little or no oil. So that means you are consuming less fat and fewer calories! That’s a win!

The Best Fried Pickles
Fried Pickles is literally one of my favorite snacks. Dip them into ranch dressing and we are in business!
I knew that I needed to put my air fryer to good snack making use and make some air fryer fried pickles. Air Fryer recipes are pretty hot right now. Everyone seems to be coming out with air fryer cookbooks and air fryer recipe books.
There are endless ideas and recipes out there. Today, it is all about air fryer pickles. When I say they are easy, I am not kidding.
How to Solve Soggy Gluten-Free Fried Pickles
Pickles can hold quite a bit of moisture. If you end up with soggy pickles it is probably because the pickles had a wee bit too much of moisture in them. Next time around, go ahead and pat dry the pickles before coating with the mixture.
Add Hot Sauce for Spicy Fried Pickles
If you LOVE a little spice or hotness to your food, I have a fix for you! You can add some hot sauce to the liquid mixture during the coating process. This will help give those little pickles some KICK!
Can you change the pickle?
Yes, you can change the pickle if you wish. I would suggest sticking with a dill pickle in spear or rounds. But if you want a sweeter one, you can opt for a bread and butter pickle. My personal opinion is the dill is the way to go!
Can I use a whole pickle?
You can start with a whole pickle. Do you know the ones that are sold in a big jar on deli counters? You can start with those and use a crinkle cutter (affiliate ad link) to make slices! If you want to make life easy you can just opt for pickle chips that are already pre-cut!
Fried Pickle Dipping Sauce Recommendations
Oh, this is getting me hungry with all this pickle talk! Whether you make your pickles in the air fryer or in the skillet, you need a good dipping sauce! Am I right?!
I am personally a big fan of dipping my air fryer pickles, deep-fried pickles OR pan-fried pickles into ranch! You can use a commercial brand of ranch dressing. But if you’d like to make a homemade version you can try my dairy-free ranch.
You could also use a spicy mayo or a comeback sauce.
