Air Fried Fried Pickle Recipe

Every July is National Pickle Month… the month to celebrate everything pickle related! I am super excited to join Windy City Live and Good Day Chicago this week with my favorite pickle recipe!

When it comes to pickles, you can eat them straight from the jar but spicing them up in a new, delicious recipe is a no-brainer!
