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 (e.g. calcium silicate). In its most basic form it is made by combining 3 parts salt and 1 part garlic powder by volume, or 6 parts salt and 1 part garlic powder by weight.
It should not be confused 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.
