I really enjoy hot buttered garlic toast. I find the minced garlic spread overpowering. I even find garlic salt a bit too much. If I did like it, I wouldn't buy it. A minimum of a dollar for less than a penny's worth of salt with a little powdered garlic added. Ouch!
I make my own garlic salt for a fraction on the cost, and like it much better. To tone down the garlic powder, I add to it, an equal amount of onion powder. Then to that mixture, I add about a fourth amount of salt, e.g. 1 oz. garlic powder + 1 oz. onion powder + ½ oz. salt.
My mix tones down the garlic, adds a touch of onion, which I really like, too; plus, I control the amount of salt, which is important at any age. Savor the flavor, not the salt.

So easy! Combine three parts salt to one part garlic powder to create garlic salt. Store it in a jar. I use small canning jars.
It's easy to make your own!
