Sprinkle salt over the green beans and toss to coat, massaging the garlic onto the green beans.

Step 3: Once this step is completed, you can transfer green beans to the air fryer basket and scrape any remaining dressing on top. Air Fry the Green Beans at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes. You can toss the green beans with tongs or shake the basket halfway through until the spots appear on the green beans and they become fork-tender. (If you are someone who prefers their green beans with more bite, fry them on the lower end of this time range.)

Step 4: Transfer green beans and any crisped garlic pieces a new serving bowl and top with any remaining sauce from the air fryer. Season to taste with salt. You can also sprinkle some parmesan cheese for enhanced flavor.

Step 5: Your delicious Green Beans in Air Fryer are ready to be devoured. Serve hot or at room temperature.
