2 pouches (3 ounces each) tuna fish
4 chopped water chestnuts

1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
2 tablespoons slivered almonds
14 red seedless grapes

In a small mixing bowl, combine tuna, water chestnuts, apple, mayonnaise, curry powder, black pepper, and parsley. Arrange a layer of 1 cup of shredded lettuce on each of two salad plates.
