Core and cut the apples into bite sized chunks OR see *Gr8 Serving Tip.
To the lettuce add the walnuts, pomegranate seeds and apples, see *Gr8 Serving Tip.
Start with adding half of the dressing and toss to coat, add more dressing as needed to fully coat the salad.
Add the tarragon leaves and cheese, toss until the ingredients are well distributed. (I leave the cheese off the salad and pass it in a small bowl if I am serving guests who may not like blue cheese...like my son!)
Salt and pepper to taste.
In a small bowl whisk together the vinegar, honey, shallot and mustard.
While whisking, gradually add the oil and whisk until well combined.
Season to taste with the salt and pepper.
You can also put the ingredients into a jar, seal and shake until fully incorporated.
Gr8 Serving Tip:
If you are plating the salads individually (for a romantic dinner for two, maybe), slice the apples just before serving and fan them out on the side of the salad. This makes a pretty presentation!
Gr8 Do-Ahead Tip:
The dressing can be made up to 3 days in advance. Keep refrigerated in a sealed container. Bring to room temperature when ready to use.
