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.
