Fresh Corn Relish Salsa - Alabama White

Pin It Now!

Did you happen to catch yesterday's post of an Alabama White Sauce (Mayo based BBQ sauce that works wonders on Chicken)?

If so, did you notice the bed of corn relish underneath the chicken quarter...

Well, the secret is indeed in the sauce.  Many corn relishes will have a base of Mayo included.  I used the very same chicken BBQ dipping sauce as the base for this side dish.

And why Not?

The sauce has a spicy Cajun flavor, a creamy smooth texture and a a surprising little tang from the vinegar which is a part of the sauce.

The recipe I make for the sauce will make almost three cups.  I use about a cup for the chicken, so I always have some left over (Makes the BEST Chicken Wings).  Since it is mayo based, you can not really can this for long term storage.  So in about 2 weeks you end up tossing a little out.  This recipe is a perfect way to use some up.

Beautiful side dish with all of the colors... Tasty with plenty of little surprise undertones... And a perfect side dish that is actually best when you make ahead and let sit in the fridge for a few hours for the flavors to mix and mingle, freeing you up to cook the dishes that need to be hot.

So, keep scrolling doen for this easy to follow recipe and as always... ENJOY!

 OK... Here's what I did...
