Quick and Easy Way to Make Garlic Salt

Here’s a really quick and easy way to make your own garlic salt. If you have salt and garlic powder in the house, all you have to do is combine the two for a simple way to create a garlic salt mixture.

How easy is that!

I haven’t bought garlic salt since I learned this handy little trick. When my garlic salt starts running low, I just grab my salt and garlic powder and I can stir up a new batch in no time for just pennies.

Easy DIY Garlic Salt Recipe

1/4 cup Table Salt
2 Tablespoons Garlic Powder

Mix the salt and garlic powder together well and store in jar or other container.

If you’ve just used up a container of store bought garlic salt, just re-use it to store your new homemade mixture. Pour the ingredients in and give it a good shake. Now you’ve got your new frugal homemade mixture in a jar that still says “garlic salt”.

You can also use this same strategy to make onion salt. Simply mix together 1/4 cup of salt with 2 tablespoons of onion powder.
