Here's a crazy idea:

Buy unsalted nuts.

EDIT:

Most nuts are good for some reason or another. Almonds are the best I would say given their protein content and good proportion of monounsaturated fat. Walnuts are a good way to supplement your EFA intake. Pistachios are a good source of fibre. Just eat the nuts you like.

Also peanuts aren't nuts, they're legumes. Nutrition wise something like almonds would be better.

i would strongly echo the advice. Most processed nuts are much to salty for me
