Air Fried Artichoke Salad with Lemon Parmesean Dressing

Have you ever tried air frying artichokes? They are SO good eaten on their own, or in this case added to a delicious salad with an amazing tart and cheesy dressing.

This salad is another easy one to throw together. A favorite of mine, as it comes together in about 30 minutes! I found this recipe on kathleenashmore.com or on Instagram as @kat_can_cook. She has the most amazing salad recipes! This is one of her most viral salads on TikTok and Instagram. This salad utilizes canned artichokes that become so deliciously crispy when air fried, then dressed in a lemony, cheesy dressing. Holy cow, it’s so good!! This is a great salad for a crowd, or for travel since it is made with raw brussels, it holds up well for a while (even overnight).
A few things may be substituted in this salad:
1. Don’t have canned artichokes? You can use frozen, thawed. Just make sure they are dried out well.
2. Feel free to blanch or roast your brussels if you don’t like them raw!
3. Don’t care for brussels at all? Substitute kale or shredded cabbage.
4. The recipe calls for white beans (cannelini are best). But you can replace with chick peas instead.
5. White vinegar can be replaced instead of lemon juice.
6. Don’t have an air fryer? Crisp the brussels in a saute pan or use a convection oven.
Either way you make this gluten free salad, you will enjoy it!! It is very hearty and satisfying.
