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)?
I’ve left them out on the counter in a tupperware container without any problems so far. Use your own discretion for the refrigeration.
I tried this recipe and it taste like dillweed not dill pickle. Not strong enough pickle flavor.
The flavor may need adjusting for personal preferences. Perhaps try a bit more pickle juice and/or a bit less dill?
Going to try this! The Emerald ones are great, but $$$.
Seen Dill Pickle Cashews by Emerald at my local grocery today and picked up a bag. They’re good, but totally going to try this recipe next time instead!
How long can u store the homemade version? Also the recipe calls fir pickle juice do u need to let them dry out or bake them?
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.
How long do these keep?
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!
