Recipe Snapshot: White BBQ Sauce

Barbecue is so subjective. Whenever people give me their opinions on a BBQ restaurant, I have to consider how opinions can differ. I'm a fan of pulled pork with tangy mustard-based sauce. My husband prefers a sweet mustard-based sauce. I've never tasted the vinegar-based sauce of North Carolina, but know I would like it since I love a little tang. So, when I saw this recipe for white BBQ sauce in Gooseberry Patch's Big Book of Home Cooking, I had to give it a try. This is a unique mayonnaise-based sauce made popular in Alabama.

White BBQ Sauce

1-1/2 c. mayonnaise
1/4 c. white wine vinegar
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp. coarsely ground pepper
1 tbsp. spicy brown mustard
2 tsp. horseradish
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt

Stir together all ingredients until well blended. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator at least 2 hours and up to one week. Makes 1-3/4 cups.

I love the flavor of horse radish which is the underlying flavor in this sauce. This sauce was tangy and delicious. It would be perfect for with chicken, beef, or pork. It would also make a good dipping sauce for french fries. Very versatile...
