Wendy Wesley, RDN joined Gayle Guyardo the host of the global health and wellness show Bloom with nutrient dense and fast air fryer recipes.

Coat the potatoes with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Place the potatoes in the basket and cook at 400 degrees for 34-45 minutes. Remove and let the potatoes cook for 5 minutes. Make a small slick across the top of each potato and squeeze open slightly. Top each potato with the sour cream and the salmon.

Cut the zucchini and squash into cubes about 1 inch by 1 inch and toss in the oil. Mix the rest of the ingredients in a small bowl and add to the zucchini and squash to coat. Air fry at 400 degrees for 7-9 minutes, shaking about halfway through the cooking time.
