#1 Taylor Farms Asian Cashew Chopped Salad

Asian Chopped Salad | 21 Delicious Things to Buy at Costco that are GF, healthy or just plan yum! | asimplepalate.com

Ok, first thing’s first. I am NOT a pre-made salad bag buyer. Pre-made salad tends to be extremely boring, flavorless, ect. But I laugh at myself now because I hardly make my own salads since buying Costco bag salad. This Asian Cashew Chopped Salad is magical. It is filled with unique asian flavors and a crunchy cashew/seed topping. They even thought of putting fresh cilantro in it and it survives in the bag!

This salad is a MUST try!

{ How we use it: I top our salad with our 6 Ingredient Pineapple Chicken Kabobs recipe and our Easy Jerk Chicken and Pineapple Salsa recipe. Both are YUUHHM. }

#2 Taylor Farms Sweet Kale Chopped Salad

Oh, hey! Another salad.
This Sweet Kale Chopped Salad comes with a sweet poppy-seed dressing and a delicious texture topping with pumpkin seeds and cranberries! I guess you could say this was our “first love” salad from Costco. We usually swap back and forth between this and that nommy Asian salad!

{ How we use it: BEST eaten with #18 Salmon Burgers and you might even see it being paired with our Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken Burger with Yogurt-Dill Sauce. 😉 }

#3 Philippine Naturally Dried Mangoes

I have a bit of a dried fruit obsession/problem. If you find me shopping at Costco, Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s, you can bet on it I had dried mango’s in my shopping cart.

One of my favorite’s to purchase at Costco!

#4 Organic Edamame Spaghetti

Edamane Pasta | 21 Delicious Things to Buy at Costco that are GF, healthy or just plan yum! | asimplepalate.com

This is such a great purchase for pasta loverz, such as myself. I absolutely love eating this with some hardy homemade meat sauce or mixed in with half regular pasta! If you have a gluten allergy or on no/low carb diet, this is a great substitute for still getting your pasta fix but still getting the protein you need!

And plus, the box will last you forever.

#5 Organic Vegetable Potstickers

I always find myself in love with the freezer section at Costco. Drew and I tried this potstickers when we first got our membership and couldn’t stop buying them! I love adding them to a dinner, or just having them to throw together quick for a snack.

Clean ingredients and SO yummy!

#6 Tzatziki Dip/Sauce

21 Delicious Things to Buy at Costco that are GF, healthy or just plan yum! | asimplepalate.com

Have you ever had Tzatziki?! If not, you MUST. I use it as a dip with Stacy’s Pita Chips, put it on Gyro’s or greek chicken and vegetables! Seriously this sauce is magic and I’m SO happy Costco sells it. It’s also a great healthy alternative for a party dip!

#7 Oven Roasted Turkey Breast

21 Delicious Things to Buy at Costco that are GF, healthy or just plan yum! | asimplepalate.com

This was one of the very first things I ate from Costco. It is one of my favorite proteins to buy and is seriously so yum! The best part about this turkey it it’s already cooked, delicious flavor, and can be served in so many different ways. Heat it up in the oven with gravy and a side of potatoes, or slice it up for a sandwich or salad. We love it all! 

#8 Smoked Whitefish Salad

21 Delicious Things to Buy at Costco that are GF, healthy or just plan yum! | asimplepalate.com

I will say this is one of the most unexpected things I have loved from Costco! I tried it at a party (extremely skeptical…We’ll put it that way). Anyway, I ended up LOVING it! And now I’m hooked. It is great to have as a fancy dip with your favorite crackers or chips! So good.

#9 Larabar Cashew & Almond Butter with Dark Chocolate Coconut

Ummmmm, I’m sorry. DO I NEED TO SAY ANYTHING MORE??
If their is something that tastes heavenly on earth, it’s anything with coconut, dark chocolate and nuttzzzzz. Just think of decadent, glorious chocolate in a served in a healthier way… Yep. Sold.

This butter is a MUST!

#10 Pomegranates/Seasonal Fruit!

Pomegranates | 21 Delicious Things to Buy at Costco that are GF, healthy or just plan yum! | asimplepalate.com

As you can tell from several of my salad recipes — I love love love using pomegranate seeds in my salad! And then if you really know me, you’ll know I eat about one (big costco pomegranate) a day when in season. Ha!

Costco not only has the biggest Pomegranates I’ve seen in my life, but you get more for you buck when buying these/any fruit at Costco! So worth it!!

{ How we use it: We love using pomegranate seeds in our Kale & Wild Rice Salad with Lemon-Herb Dressing, Apple-Pomegranate Harvest Salad, Strawberry-Pomegranate Salad with Strawberry Vinaigrette. }

#11 Fresh Rotisserie Chicken

We’ll cut to the chase–I don’t ever leave Costco without my rotisserie chicken! It is one of the most resourceful things I have ever purchased from Costco. Yes, it’s rotisserie chicken–nothing new here. But it’s not only huge haha, it has incredible flavor, can be used for multiple dinners, and makes life a whole lot easier. But I am also so excited to share a special recipe I make with the leftovers of my rotisserie chicken soon! YES, YA’LL. LEFTOVERS.

#12 Udi’s Gluten Free Whole Grain Bread

21 Delicious Things to Buy at Costco that are GF, healthy or just plan yum! | asimplepalate.com

I cannot rave about this bread enough! I was huge into Ezekiel (and still am) before finding this. I love having toast with peanut butter in the morning and this bread is SO great for a GF option. Great texture and taste! LOVE this bread.

Also, you are saving about $2 buying it at Costco compared to regular grocery store pricing. Win!

Ok, so we literally go through Jars of peanut butter like it ain’t nobody’s business. These are a LIFESAVER from spending a fortune in a regular grocery story for natural peanut butter. Clean ingredients and so yum!

#15 Sabatasso’s Gluten Free Pizza

21 Delicious Things to Buy at Costco that are GF, healthy or just plan yum! | asimplepalate.com

Gluten free pizza? Usually does not taste like pizza. But this is seriously the BEST when it comes to frozen pizza options. Tastes just like regular pizza and is SO good! I was amazed when I first had this.

#16 TastyBite Brown Rice & Lentils

21 Delicious Things to Buy at Costco that are GF, healthy or just plan yum! | asimplepalate.com

We love cooking brown rice in our house, but I’m not the only one in the world to say brown rice takes forever to cook. Not only is this super handy to have because of how fast it cooks but it has amazing ingredients and simple herb flavors to spice it up.

Our favorite way to eat this is as a side dish or with #21 Madras Lentils!

#17 Food Should Taste Good Multigrain Tortilla Chips

21 Delicious Things to Buy at Costco that are GF, healthy or just plan yum! | asimplepalate.com

If you haven’t yet had these, you must! These are the best tortilla chips ever. Always keep these stocked in our pantry!

#18 Alaskan Salmon Burgers

21 Delicious Things to Buy at Costco that are GF, healthy or just plan yum! | asimplepalate.com

These are so amazing. And have come to save the day when I have no dinner to make!
We put them on salads, buns, quinoa–you name it! They are so delicious.

We mention in #2-Sweet Kale Salad that we love pairing these 2 together. Try it!!!

#19 Kirkland Milk Chocolate Almonds

21 Delicious Things to Buy at Costco that are GF, healthy or just plan yum! | asimplepalate.com

Okay, if you haven’t ever had Kirkland chocolate covered almonds you may need to stop whatever you are doing and immediately go get them. I’m doomed whenever I eat them because I literally can’t stop snacking on those little pieces of gold!

LOVE them.

#20 La Brea Bakery Naan Bread

21 Delicious Things to Buy at Costco that are GF, healthy or just plan yum! | asimplepalate.com

If you love pizza or flatbreads this is such a great item to have in your kitchen! Whenever I buy these for pizza I usually throw the rest of what I didn’t use in the freezer and take em’ out whenever I need them next.

You can make the quickest, tastiest pizza’s with these! Naan Bread is one of my favorites.

#21 TastyBite Madras Lentils

21 Delicious Things to Buy at Costco that are GF, healthy or just plan yum! | asimplepalate.com

Ok, these are last for a reason. We do not leave Costco without our Madras Lentils from TasteBite! And I’m not your average joe that buys quick meals like this. But all the ingredients in this product are clean. HUGE win in itself. And it’s dinner done in 1 minute. Convinced yet?

This and #16 are a match made in heaven. And are literally the perfect back up when I need a quick dinner or side thrown together. SO. GOOD.

Side note: I saw one pack of these being sold at my local grocery store for 1/2 the price of this box (that holds SIX). You are saving a ton on this one!
