Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spread the walnuts or pecans onto a small baking sheet and bake for 7 to 9 minutes, stirring frequently. Don’t let them burn! Let nuts cool, then roughly chop before adding to salad.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, granulated sugar, poppy seeds, parsley, lemon zest and lemon juice. Set aside.
In a large bowl combine the chopped apples, halved grapes, pineapple chunks and celery.
Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to combine.
Gently stir in half of the toasted nuts and then sprinkle the rest over the top just before serving.
Serve in lettuce cups or on it’s own.
