Alabama Style White Barbecue Sauce

Nothing says Memorial Day and summertime like a big cookout, but you don't have to barbecue ribs, hot dogs, or other high calorie meats to get big flavor.  Instead, try smoking a turkey breast or chicken for a lighter option.  Add lots of fresh veggies, and you can start out the summer on a healthy, and delicious note!
White barbecue sauce is considered by some to be a local Alabama delicacy, and by others as a travesty against "real barbecue" but we can all agree that the tangy flavor perfectly complements chicken and turkey.  Drizzle over cooked meats or use as a topping on sandwiches.  Celebrate the official start of summer this Memorial Day weekend with friends and family, and share this lightened up "Alabama Style" White Barbecue Sauce for big time down home flavor.

White Barbecue Sauce

2 cups olive oil blend mayonnaise
3/4 cup White Muscadine White Vinegar
3/4 cup lemon juice
2-3 Tbsp freshly ground black pepper
3 Tbsp sugar substitue (like Truvia or Splenda) optional

Whisk together all ingredients and refrigerate until time to serve.  May store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.

  1. I have to try this. Normally I don't put sauce on my meat except pork ribs. The sauce I use is 4T pineapple jelly, 2T of vinegar, 1/2t of garlic, and cayenne pepper. I based it on the ribs, when it has 15 minutes left to cook.
