This iconic condiment is a true Southern classic.  Head down to Alabama, and you’ll find Alabama White Sauce on pork chops, spare ribs, and grilled chicken.   It’s one of our favorite sauces to cook with!

The horseradish sauce combined with the apple cider vinegar, and, of course, top-notch mayonnaise…makes a flavor combination that just cannot be beaten.

And the great thing is you can whip up a batch well in advance of when you are serving. It gets even better as it sits in the fridge for a day or two!
