Air Fryer Southern Fried Squash

Southern Fried Squash is so delicious but frying it uses a lot of oil. Making it in your air fryer cuts the excess fat but gives it the crispness you want.

Summer squash can be a little more tender than zucchini or other vegetables like eggplant so cutting it a little thicker helps ensure the cooked dish is tender but not mushy.
