Air-Fryer-Fried-Pickles

My love for fried pickles all started when I tried one at a local restaurant. It was hard not to eat just one but being on a Keto diet I know I had to limit myself. I came home and wanted more but needed to think of a way to make them Keto-friendly. Pickles, eggs and pork rinds are all low carb so why not combine them to make fried pickles? GENIUS! 

Can you air fry pickles? YES, you can. I used the Ninja Foodi and they ended up turning out amazing! For the dips, I used a few different ones. For a bit of kick, I had buffalo ranch and then for a more mild taste, I had regular ranch. While I used original pork rinds for the batter, you could also change up the flavor and use the spicy pork rinds flavor.
