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. Spoon half the mixture on top of lettuce for each plate. Sprinkle each tuna salad with 1 tablespoon almonds, and place 7 grapes around salad. If using the optional rye toast, cut each slice diagonally into triangles, and serve two toast triangles alongside each salad.
