Hearty Apple Pecan Salad in the Air Fryer

To make this recipe, you will need:

  • 1 pound brussels sprouts – trimmed and halved
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil or avocado oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne seasoning
  • 1 cup sliced apple – I used Honeycrisp.
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinaigrette- homemade or store-bought

How to Cook Brussels Sprouts in the Air Fryer

Brussels sprouts are so easy to make in the air fryer, not to mention so tasty too! Take the pound of brussels sprouts and make sure to trim them of any excess leaves and cut them in half.

For the oil, you will want to make sure you have enough to completely cover the Brussels sprouts.

Pour the brussels sprouts in a bowl, and combine it with oil, salt, ground pepper, and cayenne seasoning.

Tip for Cooking Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts

Brussels sprouts cooked in the air fryer are cooked to perfection! They are thoroughly cooked when they are nice and soft, but with a little bit of crispness on the outside.

Place the prepared brussels sprouts in the air fryer basket and cook it for 10-15 minutes. Halfway through cooking, open the air fryer basket and add in the rest of the salad contents (the apple slices, dried cranberries, and chopped pecans).

Continue roasting until sprouts and apples reach desired crispiness.

Serving Apple Pecan Brussels Sprouts Salad

Remove the content from the air fryer basket and transfer to a bowl. Drizzle with the red wine vinaigrette. Serve immediately and enjoy!
