  • 2 medium heads romaine halved lengthwise
  • olive oil spray
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup red onion thinly sliced
  • 1 recipe [air-fryer buffalo chickpeas]
  • 1/2 cup caesar dressing use your favorite
  • 1/4 cup [buffalo sauce]
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/4 cup shaved parmesan
  • 2 tablespoon snipped fresh chives


  • Preheat your air fryer to 390° or 400° – depending on the make and model.
  • While that preheats, cut your romaine in half lengthwise, give a quick rinse and pat well to dry. Lightly spray the cut side with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Once your air fryer is preheated, work in batches (if necessary) place two halves in the basket, and air fry for 3 to 4 minutes. The romaine should be bright green still but crispy and golden brown in spots.
  • Top with thinly sliced red onion, avocado, crispy buffalo chickpeas, crumbled blue cheese, shaved parmesan and drizzle it all with caesar dressing of your choice and buffalo sauce. Lastly top with snipped chives or thinly sliced green onions.
