When I first heard of White BBQ Sauce I thought to myself that someone had made a mistake. Then I came to realize that this sauce is very popular in the South and is more of a Dipping Sauce.
White BBQ sauce, also known as Alabama white sauce, is a tangy and creamy condiment that originated in the southern United States.
Unlike traditional barbecue sauces that are usually tomato-based and sweet, white BBQ sauce is made with mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, horseradish, and spices.
As I've mentioned previously in other recipes, I love food with a little kick. And this BBQ sauce will not disappoint. Just a handful of ingredients that you mix together and done! No boiling or anything else. That easy!
This sauce is perfect for dipping chicken tenders or you could even use it in a sandwich wrap. I've had it on turkey burgers and even like to dip my fries in this delicious sauce.
If you're looking to try this delicious condiment but don't live in the South where it's readily available at most grocery stores and restaurants, you can easily make your own at home with this simple recipe.
