1 pound green beans, trimmed

1 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for serving

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/4 cup roughly chopped fresh parsley

1 small clove garlic, finely grated

Finely grated zest from 1/2 lemon

3 tablespoons roasted sliced almonds


Special equipment:
a 3.5-quart air fryer
  1. Preheat a 3.5-quart air fryer to 375 degrees F. Toss the green beans, olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt and several grinds of pepper in a large bowl until evenly combined. Transfer to the air-fryer basket and air-fry the green beans, tossing halfway through, until tender and blistered in spots, about 12 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, stir the parsley, garlic, lemon zest, 1/8 teaspoon salt and a couple grinds of pepper together in a small bowl until combined. Stir in the toasted almonds. 
  3. Place the green beans on a serving platter, top with the gremolata mixture and drizzle lightly with more olive oil.
