One of the best salads from Costco I’ve tried!

Costco has a new salad kit available and I’m excited to be reviewing it today! I’ve reviewed numerous other salad kids like the Taylor Farms Buffalo Blue Salad Kit, Taylor Farms Baja Salad Kit, Taylor Farms Asian Cashew Chopped Salad and the Taylor Farms Steakhouse Salad Kit. Today I’m reviewing the Costco Taylor Farms Creamy Dill Pickle Salad that can be found in the produce room by the other salads and the item number is 1487794.
I enjoy dill pickle chips from time to time and I will eat dill pickles on burgers but I wouldn’t say I’m a die-hard dill pickle fan. Even if you don’t like dill pickle at all you might want to check out this new salad available at Costco. This tastes unreal, so delicious and loaded with a ton of flavor. The salad is a mix of green cabbage, cauliflower, red cabbage, green leaf lettuce and kale. You get a bag of toppings that comes in the salad which contains a package of creamy dill pickle ranch dressing, dill pickle seasoning, feta cheese, and dill pickle brioche crouton crumbles. When you mix the salad with all of the toppings it makes a taste bud tantalizing concoction. The feta cheese is fresh and goes well with all the other toppings. The brioche croutons are lightly seasoned with dill pickle and are nice and buttery, they also add a bit of extra crunchy texture to the salad. The dill pickle seasoning packet contains a thin powder/seasoning you sprinkle over the salad, it definitely tastes like dill pickle so if you’re not the biggest dill pickle fan you might want to just add a little sprinkling of the seasoning and if you love dill pickle definitely add the whole thing! If you don’t use your whole packet of seasoning, save the rest for popcorn! The dressing is a creamy ranch with just a hint of dill pickle. This salad is extremely flavorful and delicious and also quite filling. Both of us loved it.
I paid $3.39 Canadian for the Costco Taylor Farms Creamy Dill Pickle Salad. There are 274.14 grams of salad & toppings and 79.8 ml of dressing. This is an amazing price for the salad! At some other grocery stores, a salad like this would be at least $5 or more.
Each topping comes in a separate small plastic bag so you can easily leave any ingredients you don’t like out. The dill pickle salad makes an awesome side salad or could also be great for your lunch or dinner with a bit of chicken or other protein added. The best before date is over a week from the date I purchased the salad. I’ve eaten these salads on the day of the best before date or a day after and they always taste just fine.
One cup of prepared salad is 150 calories, 11 grams of fat, three grams of protein, 380 mg of sodium, two grams of fibre, three grams of sugar and 12 grams of carbohydrates. If you’re watching your fat or calorie intake you may want to use a little less dressing or skip the feta and croutons but to be honest this salad just wouldn’t be quite as amazing without all the delicious toppings!
I have three of these in my fridge as I write this review. I hope Costco keeps it for a long time to come because I really enjoy it. For the price, even if you’re not a dill pickle fan I suggest you try this salad. You might be pleasantly surprised.

I LOVE the Dill Salad kits from Costco!! Be kind of nice though, if they’d use something other than Kale in there — maybe Romaine Lettice instead. Kale for me is almost like eating thistles. I also love how it now comes in a two package kit. I make a Thai Salad out of the first bag by removing the ingredients pkg & saving it for the next bag, which I eat the next day. In the Thai Salad I use two handfuls of Costco Salad Toppings, cut up Cukes, Tomatoes & sweet Onions, Croutons, one half cup of prepared Rotini Noodles & Sweet Thai Dressing — ALL Costco products. DELICIOUS!! Second bag is the actual Creamy Dill Salad with twice the Ingredients BUT – with two poached eggs chopped & added for extra protein, 2 handsful of Salad Topppings, cut up Cukes, Tomatoes & sweet Onions, 1/2 cup Rotini Noodles, Extra crumbled Feta & some Croutons for some “crunch”. Both salads made this way are TO DIE FOR!! A little more expensive at Kitchener/Waterloo at $8 for the double kit — so $4/bag…..but darn worth it.
No way to Edit my submitted comment — but just wanted to add that the “extra” crumbled Feta I add to the Creamy Dill Salad is also a Costco product called Skotisdaka — and that Feta is also “to die for”.!! I add the extra amount because after I’ve chopped up & added all the extra Ingredients the Salad is big enough to feed four adults. ♥♥
Try this with the seasoned Costco chicken wings. A winning combo!
That does sound good!
Way too salty and the nutrition facts on the bag reflect this.
Per one cup serving, this salad weighs in at 380 mg, 17% of daily value.
I love salt but after a few mouthfuls, I couldn’t finish it.
That sounds delicious mike. Make sure you add some feta on it, never had a vegan pickle before. Always had it raw or burnt.
I love this salad , I buy a few bags each Costco trip. I add grilled Chicken & avocado and it’s a delicious satisfying meal
I love the salad mix … but I do not like the dressing. I use the salad mix, add blueberries, and use my favorite ginger dressing. And for one salad…I use the feta cheese packet. Love it!
I absolutely love this salad! I was not sure If I would even like it. I have purchased at least 6 bags in the last two months. And it stays fresh after the sell by date. I wish the dressing came in a bigger bag.
Whats this noise about cheese and dill seasoning packet? Mine came from Costco and had neither! Disapointed!
Sorry …cannot recommend this salad…. horrible, still suffering from case of food poisioning . I will never buy Taylor dill kale salad again!!
Great salad and value! I made my own ( made it in bulk and calculated my cost) compare pricing! I used Kale, cauliflower,broccoli, Brussels sprouts cabbage and some ( my own garden) parsley! ( majority bought at Costco) it cost me( after an hour of washing, weighing and chopping) for a 10z bag( approx 333g)
$2.22 and that is also without the dressing and feta in the store bought package! So still Costco has a great price for this salad and saves time and energy to cut up veggies!!! Love this salad and also their quinoa salad that I also add to this salad when I eat it!
Great review of tremendous salad. We had leftover wild smoked salmon (also from Costco) and some fresh grilled asparagus. Mixed it all in. Complete healthy meal and so good!!!!
A stranger at Costco saw me looking at this and told me how good it was. She was right! I skip the bread crumbs but it’s still very tasty! Love that dressing. I guess you do have to be a pickle fan to like it though.
What happened to the cheese and dill seasoning. No longer included
Did you possibly buy it from Safeway or Superstore? Only the Costco one has the cheese & dill seasoning.
I added extra fresh chopped dill pickles. And cheese
I would like this made with softer veggies then kale or cabbage
We also buy a few at a time. We actually mix it with regular mixed greens for more “salad” but use the same toppings individually (I like more seasoning). I can’t figure out what kind of feta this is. So much softer and delicious than the cow’s milk kind I buy.
I add more vegetables for more salad too! I definitely agree that the feta is delicious!
Very delicious especially with the cabbage in the mix. Excellent combination of ingredients and value. BUT…we have had three bags lately all missing the dill pickle seasoning which is the stand-out ingredient of this salad!! We’re not the only ones; we bought a few salads for a pickle fanatic friend and one of the two bags was missing the seasoning. I’ll be writing to Taylor Farms regarding their product quality assurance issue – which I am sure they are aware of. Having said that, we’ll buy another four bags during our next Costco visit and keep our fingers crossed!
Club House makes a Dill Dressing and Dip mix that I find pretty tasty. I use it for dressings as well as chicken wing seasoning, Yum! I find it a a local grocer (Associated Grocer) but I’m sure it’s available at other locations as well.
I discovered this salad recently as well and I absolutly LOVE IT! It’s right up there with the Kale Salad and I could honestly eat this every day. To me it tastes exactly like Dill Pickle chips. You get the flavour and the crunch and even a bit of the “chip craving” covered with the crotons.
This is one of the best convenience values in the Warehouse. Delicious and quick for when you get home late. No person I have served this to has not commented on how tasty it is. I am hard pressed to make a salad from scratch that would compete with this gem.
