I am a sucker for a good alternative fry, and this simple side fits that bill perfectly. Every time I’ve made this, I’ve eaten an embarrassing number of zucchini.
Note: Mine are a little pale in the picture because in this batch I forgot to spritz with oil. They were still yummy, though.

Zucchini Ranch Air Fryer Fries
3-4 small zucchini
2 Tbsp. ranch seasoning (check your labels if you need this to fit into your specific dietary requirements)
3 Tbsp. cornstarch
Generous sprinkle salt
2 Tbsp. mayo
1 Tbsp. ketchup
1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
2 tsp. pickle relish
Oil for brushing
Preheat your air fryer for 3 minutes (200C/400F).
While your air fryer is preheating, slice the zucchini into fry shapes. Salt generously and let sit in a bowl while you make the fry sauce.
Whisk the fry sauce ingredients together in a small bowl.
When the air fryer is heated, add the Ranch seasoning and cornstarch to the bowl and toss well to coat.
Add to the bowl of the fryer in a single layer. Spritz lightly with a little oil or brush a little on top.
Fry 8 minutes, shaking a couple times and hitting with a little more oil if needed.
Serves ? If you’re not me, probably 2 or 3
