Found this in the Decatur Daily archives:

White Sauce

This was stolen from Sammy Stone, who says he stole it from someone else, but can no longer remember from whom. Vary to suit your taste.

1/2 cup white or red wine vinegar
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon (or more) pepper
2 tablespoons sugar, or to taste
1/2 cup mayonnaise

Add more or less mayonnaise for a thicker or thinner sauce and/or less water for a stronger sauce. You may add more, not less, pepper. Many insist it's not right without as much as 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons of pepper. Some say just the idea of adding sugar is barbaric.

Primarily used on chicken, white sauce has also been sprinkled on just about everything else from pork (in lieu of red sauce) and ribs to biscuits and rolls.

Makes 1 cup.
