It’s a no brainer: Salt makes food taste better. It makes the sweet sweeter. The savory more savory. It’s the oldest secret weapon in the book—and it’s downright dynamic with a little zing. But of course, you already knew that.
Our garlic salt is the real deal: Coarse-ground garlic, dried parsley flakes and of course, salt. And it’s not just for finishing off a dish before you dig in. Here are four flavorful ways to add garlic salt to your favorite foods.
Tip #1: Amp up your bread
Mix Garlic Salt with softened, unsalted butter and spread on crusty Italian bread. Add additional flavors from there—fresh Mediterranean herbs and Parmesan are the perfect finishing touches for a Mediterranean-inspired meal. Heat on the broiler for 2-3 minutes or until golden.
Tip #2: Flavor boiled water
Shake Garlic Salt into boiling water before cooking pasta, potatoes or rice to add extra flavor. If desired, add additional fresh herbs and let them simmer with the starches as they cook.
Tip #3: Add pizazz to sauce
Add Garlic Salt to sauces, soups and stocks while simmering to amp up their flavor. Remember that canned ingredients can be salty, so make sure to taste before shaking.
Tip #4: Make dips for chips
Mix Garlic Salt in with guacamole, chopped onions, chopped tomatoes, lemon juice and pepper. Let sit in the refrigerator before serving, so flavors have a chance to deepen.
