Air Fryer Balsamic Asparagus

Air Fryer Balsamic Asparagus and Almonds

Print Recipe
Air Fryer Balsamic Asparagus is a delicious and super simple side dish. Trimmed asparagus spears are tossed with olive oil, reduced balsamic vinegar (aka balsamic glaze), garlic powder and sliced almonds before being air-fried to perfection. The glaze is sweet, slightly sticky and the almonds add delicious crunch.
