A popular topping for chicken in BBQ restaurants in the Southern United States, this Homemade Alabama White Sauce is quick and easy to make for your next BBQ. The sauce gets a little heat from horseradish sauce and a little tang from lemon juice and apple cider vinegar. It is similar to dressings used on coleslaw.

Unlike most barbecue sauces, which have a tomato or sometimes a mustard base, this one uses mayonnaise. This gives the sauce a distinct white color and unique flavor. Experiment with the quantities of ingredients used. Add more sugar if you like it sweeter, or more horseradish if you prefer heat.

Traditionally the white sauce is served with chicken, but feel free to be creative. It is especially tasty with grilled vegetables. Unlike some sauces which can be baked onto the BBQ like a glaze this one is better when used as a post cooking sauce or side-sauce.
