red apples, unpeeled (cored and diced)
granny smith apples, unpeeled (cored and diced)
pear, unpeeled (firm green or red, cored and diced)
cooked chicken, diced
celery, thinly sliced
walnuts, coarsely chopped (or pecans)
dried cranberries (craisins)

Pour the cold water into a medium bowl, and mix in the 1 teaspoon of lemon juice. Add the diced fruit and allow to stand briefly. This keeps the fruit from browning.

Drain and add the diced apples, mixing well.
In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, sour cream, 2 tablespoons lemon juice and parsley.
Add to the chicken mixture and gently toss to coat.
Cover bowl with plastic wrap and chill thoroughly before serving.
To serve place some lettuce leaves on each plate on top with salad.
