In a medium-size bowl, whisk lemon juice with honey, mustard, shallots, tarragon, salt and pepper. While whisking, slowly drizzle in oil. Set dressing aside. Separate leaves of lettuce. Wash well and pat or spin dry. Arrange leaves on a platter or individual salad plates. Leaving skin on, thinly slice apples; arrange apples over lettuce.
