 Kitchen Utensils:

  • mixing bowl or electric mixer 
  • a whisk
  • cutting board
  • cutting knife
  • mixing spoon

Mince onion, parsley and capers. Be careful not to mince too much which will make them too watery.
Place 1 cup of mayonnaise, 1 tbsp. of mustard, 1 tbsp. of fresh lemon juice, and 1 tsp. of Worcestershire sauce in a medium mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk everything together in the bowl.
