How did we get this recipe to clock in under 200 calories per serving? While most fried green tomato recipes require frying in tons of oil, this healthier alternative uses the air fryer! This helps to cut down on calories while still providing that crispy, crunchy texture you know and love.

After dredging your green tomato slices in eggs and covering them in a mixture of panko breadcrumbs and cornmeal, place them in a single layer inside a greased air fryer and spray them with nonstick cooking spray. Cook them at 400 degrees for about seven to eight minutes. Flip them over, spray the other side with cooking spray and cook for another four minutes.

While your tomatoes are cooking to crispy perfection, whip up a simple four-ingredient Creamy Sriracha Dip by combining nonfat plain Greek yogurt, light mayonnaise, minced garlic and sriracha. It’s the perfect way to spice up this classic snack!
