I’ve become addicted to the bagged dill pickle salad from Costco so I decided to try my hand a making my own Chopped Dill Pickle Salad at home. If you love dill pickle flavor like me you’re gonna want to make this salad!
I love the Taylor Farms dill pickle bagged salad so much that I thought it may be a good idea to make a homemade version. It’s basically a chopped salad with a dill pickle ranch dressing and dill flavored brioche croutons. I simplified the dill pickle dressing for this salad by using Trader Joe’s dill pickle seasoning blend with some greek yogurt and mayonnaise. If you don’t have any dill pickle seasoning blend then you can whip up the dressing with some common dried herbs from your pantry. I used the seasoning blend to flavor the croutons as well.
The salad consists of chopped cauliflower, kale, green and purple cabbage and romaine lettuce, crumbled feta and topped off with some dill flavored brioche croutons.

Chopped Dill Pickle Salad
I’ve simplified making the dressing and croutons in this recipe by using Trader Joes Dill Pickle Seasoning blend for all the spices in this salad. Easy peasy and so delicious!
For the Salad:
- 1 C. chopped kale leaves (discard the stem)
- 1 C. chopped red cabbage
- 1 C. chopped green cabbage
- 1 C. chopped romaine lettuce
- 1 C. chopped cauliflower
- 1/2 – 3/4 C. crumbled feta cheese
- brioche croutons (see recipe below)
For the Dill Ranch Dressing:
- 1/2 C. mayonaise
- 1/2 C. plain greek yogurt (I use full fat)
- 1/4 C. chopped dill pickles
- 1/4 C. dill pickle juice
- 1 Tbls. Trader Joes Dill Pickle Seasoning Blend
For the Brioche Croutons:
- 2 C. diced or torn brioche pieces
- olive oil (to drizzle over brioche pieces)
- 2 tsp. Trader Joes Dill Pickle Seasoning Blend
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. On cookie sheet toss to combine brioche pieces with olive oil and pickle seasoning. Bake in oven, stirring a few times, until toasted and firm.
In jar, whisk or shake to combine dill ranch dressing ingredients and keep in refrigerator until ready to use.
In large salad bowl, combine salad ingredients (except croutons). Toss with desired amount of dill ranch dressing. Top with croutons and serve.
I like to add a little chopped fresh dill if I have it to the dressing as well as the salad but that’s totally optional.
