Although it might seem more complicated, garlic salt is exactly what it sounds like-- a mixture of garlic and salt. This blend is a nice addition to salad dressings, marinades, even as a topping for popcorn. Typically garlic salt is available in the spice section of most grocery stores, but if you're in a pinch use this simple homemade recipe.
Measure 3 tablespoons of salt into a bowl.
Add 1 tablespoon of garlic powder to the salt. Mix well.
Substitute the correct amount of this mixture for the garlic salt in your recipe.
To create garlic salt, the ratio is always 3 portions of salt to 1 portion of garlic powder, so simply adjust as needed.
