Santé Nuts sent us packages of snack nuts in nine varieties:

  • Almonds: Chipotle Almonds, Garlic Almonds
  • Cashews: Cardamom Cashews
  • Pecans: Candied Pecans, Cinnamon Pecans,
    Roasted Salted Pecans, Sweet and Spicy Pecans
  • Pistachios: Candied Pistachios
  • Walnuts: Candied Walnuts
    Even the savory flavors have a touch of sweetness. The nuts are gluten-free and certified kosher by Star-K.

    The line was developed by necessity: Sara Tidhar was a single mom in need of an income. Her son urged her to sell the roasted, seasoned nuts she made for the family and she soon found herself with thousands of orders.

    Santé, the French word for health, denotes a better-for-you snack. We really like the one-ounce, grab-and-go packages of nutritious nuts as a substitute for candy and cookie snacks. They’re all-natural, very crunchy and fresh-tasting, with just enough cane sugar to satisfy a sweet tooth.

    Hand-roasted in small batches, the nuts are made with less oil (canola oil, a monounsaturated, healthy fat), as well. Try them with a fruity wine or beer.

    Santé Nuts can be purchased on and on the company website, One-ounce packages are $1.99, four-ounce packages are $5.99.

    Toss Into Recipes

    The nuts add interest to a salad—green salad, chicken salad, tuna salad, spinach-and-blue-cheese salad—sweet potato casserole, stuffing, whatever. Here are two lively salad recipes to try:

  • Pear, Arugula & Endive Salad With Candied Walnuts
  • Curried Chicken Salad With Pecans & Grapes
