Garlic salt is a seasoned salt used as food seasoning made of a mixture of dried ground garlic and table salt with an anti-caking agent. In its most basic form it is made by combining 3 parts salt and 1 part garlic powder.
It can be used as a substitute for fresh garlic, such as in dishes like burgers or chili.
It should not be mistaken with minced garlic, granulated garlic, or garlic powder, which are just ground dried garlic, also sold as spices.
Ground garlic can be made into garlic salt by pouring it into a bowl with salt and pouring humectant on it.
