Homemade Dill Pickle Cashews

Many years ago, my best friend got me totally hooked on Target’s/Archer Farms’ dill pickle cashews.  Unfortunately, our love was short lived.  One fateful day, they were discontinued.  To this day, every time I am in Target, I scan the nut section in the hopes that they brought them back – but no luck.  (I just found these online, but have never seen them in the store, and they are a different brand, so I don’t know how good they are.)

Finally one day I decided to take matters into my own hands:

  • 2 cups roasted cashews
  • 1 tbsp dried dill
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tbsp onion powder
  • 1/2 – 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp pickle juice (I just pour this straight out of a jar of pickles)

Combine all ingredients and shake to coat cashews.  Try not to inhale them all at once.  🙂

    I am very excited to see this recipe!! Question though: I want to make a lot of these to take to a family thing. Do I need to store them in the fridge or bake them or should they be fine to sit out (with the pickle juice)?

      You can eat them as soon as you mix everything up, but they will be a little bit wet from the pickle juice. After it dries (either through baking or just air drying – I always just air dry), you won’t notice any wetness.

      I’ve kept them in a well-sealed tupperware container for a week or two without any problems. I imagine your local temperature and humidity might make a bit of a difference (it’s super dry here), but they never seem to last long enough to find out. 🙂

    Just made these and am trying SO hard not to eat them all before my boyfriend gets home! I added a tiny bit more pickle juice because I like the flavor, but otherwise the amounts of the other ingredients seem perfect. I’m definitely making these again!
