The onion powder bottle should give you a measurement. On a Penzeys onion powder bottle they recommend 1 teaspoon for a half cup of chopped onions.

I would not do this with onion salt as it may make the dish too salty.

You could also throw fresh onion in the blender.

Only you know your sensitivities and allergies. But you can get simple garlic and onion granules, you don't need to fool around with salt. The substitution quantities will be on the label. My husband is a non-onion person, but he's OK with dishes made with granules.

I have used onion & garlic powder alot instead of real onions and garlic. I love the real thing, but hubbie doesn't like onions in his potato and mac salad so i put in the powder and works good. I also do it if I am taking it to a dish to pass as many people do not like onions in their foods.
