Cut off stem and leaves of fennel; reserve leaves. Cut bulb in half lengthwise; remove and discard core. Slice bulb crosswise into thin slices (about 2 cups). Chop 1 teaspoon fennel leaves and set aside for dressing. Combine sliced fennel, apple and red onion in a large bowl. To make dressing, combine balsamic vinegar and mustard in small bowl; whisk in oil. Add fennel leaves, salt and pepper. Divide greens equally among six salad plates.
