Most Amazing Garlic Salt Ever

This post contains affiliate links

A friend of mine told me about making my own garlic salt and it sounded interesting, but I didn’t get around to trying it right away.  But, she kept raving about how awesome it was, and how it wasn’t anything like what you buy in the store, so I finally had to try it myself!

She was so right.  I think I am addicted to my garlic salt.  I put it on my fried eggs, popcorn, hamburgers, veggies, in my kefir… wait… not in my kefir.  That’s gross!  But I do use it anywhere that sounds yummy.

WARNING:  You house will smell like garlic if you make this!  It made me hungry. 

This is not difficult to do, but it is a bit time consuming.  Will I be making it again?  Oh yes!  I don’t think I can live without it.  Well… I can, but I don’t want too!

I used just 3 ingredients the first time.  Next time I will probably only use 2, since I don’t have easy access to fresh rosemary.

Garlic Salt
2-3 cloves of garlic
1 TB kosher salt
 Fresh rosemary (optional)

Place the garlic and the kosher salt on a cutting board. 

Garlic Salt

Chop the garlic until it is the same size as the kosher salt.  This will take some time!  Just keep chopping.  When you have a uniform size in the garlic salt, sprinkle the leaves of the fresh rosemary (use as much or as little as you wish) onto the  salt and chop until the rosemary is in very small pieces.  I love this Alaskan Ulu knife and chopping bowl that my husband got me for Christmas one year!  It is the perfect tool for this job!

Garlic Salt

Spread the garlic salt onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet and allow it to dry overnight, stirring occasionally. 

Garlic Salt

Allow garlic salt to dry completely before storing in a glass jar.

Is this the cutest jar ever? My sweet friend Rebecca gave it to me! Thank you, friend!

I made a really big batch of this salt.  I also experimented by using Pink Himalayan Sea Salt.  I actually like the kosher salt version better.  It seems to have a more robust flavor to it.

You can use different herbs if you wish.  Rosemary, Sage, or Thyme would be great options.

One of my favorite ways to use this is on cooked vegetables, with melted butter and garlic salt.  So yummy!

Even though this takes a little bit of work and time, it is so worth it.  I need to make sure I don’t run out of this! 

What is your favorite food to add garlic salt to?  Have you ever made any kind of flavored salts before?

Homemade garlic salt is truly amazing & is bursting with flavor. The store bought stuff isn't even close to the amazing depth of flavor this recipe brings.

  1. Garlic salt is something we use a TON of! That being said, it’s been something I’ve thought I should figure out how to make myself; but you did for me!!!! Yay! I wonder if the chopping could be done in a food processor?

    1. Hi RaShea. My friend tried chopping it in the food processor, but it released so much garlic juice that it didn’t work well. I think as you chop it by hand into the salt, the salt absorbs the released juices. You can try it with a food processor, but you might want to go slow and easy with it. Please let me know if it works for you. It would be awesome if it could be done that way.
