Kale chips are so easy when you make them in the air fryer, but they are so much better with some flavor. Try these air fried salt and vinegar kale chips!
Kale isn’t my favorite leafy green, but without fail, it is in my weekly basket from the farmer’s market. White it’s relatively easy to through in a dish and eat it without being too mindful that I’m eating kale.
I’ve made plenty of kale chips in the oven and I’ve found that they have kind of grown on me. If they are done right, the kale chips have a light, delicate crunch. Add some salt, and they are kind of fun to snack on.

I found this Malt Vinegar Powder last fall and I’ve started adding it to so many things. The flavor isn’t too sharp of a vinegar, so your mouth doesn’t pucker, but it definitely adds a fun pop of vinegar to foods like popcorn and chicken wings
I had the brilliant idea of tossing some air fried kale chips with the malt vinegar powder and I’m so glad I did. All of the sudden, the kale chips weren’t so bad! With the addition of salt and the sharpness of the malt vinegar powder, the air fried kale chips become addictive!
I use both red kale and curly kale when making air fried salt and vinegar kale chips. Make sure to wash and dry your kale leaves, then remove the leaves from the spine. Rip the leaves into bite size pieces and toss the kale with either olive oil or avocado oil. I just used a couple of sprays of olive oil and then massaged the oil into the kale leaves. Add some salt, kosher salt or sea salt. I used Redmond Real Salt and it was perfect.
Add the kale to the air fryer basket. I always line the bottom of the air fryer basket with a liner, which is basically parchment paper with holes in it. The air fryer that I use is the GoWise 5.8 Quart. I’ve had it for a couple of years now and it has never let me down.
