  3. In a small bowl, combine lemon juice, oil, sugar, salt, Worcestershire sauce, mustard and black pepper; mix well. Blend in mayonnaise. Pour lemon dressing over potatoes and stir to coat.
  4. Mix in spring onions, celery and parsley. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving to allow flavours to meld.
