I am a fan of my own mix too. Even the reduced salt ones are soooo salty!

Sometimes a can of Rotel chilis and tomatoes is a great addition too.

I'll have to check out the brand name on mine when I get the laptop off my lap, but when I checked out the ingredients salt wasn't listed until about the 4th item. When I use it, I use one packet per pound of meat, and I do NOT add salt. If anything, my dish may be a little undersalted, but not enough to matter. I still don't add salt.

I really wish they would eliminate salt from mixes. I often would like more of the basic seasoning flavor, but am limited by the quantity of salt in the mixes.

I never use garlic salt, onion salt, or celery salt. I use the powders, or with celery I use celery seed.

I finally found Old Bay to add to my collection, and they had 1/3 less salt available, so I snapped that up. Old Bay is a nice blend and adds new flavor to old dishes.
