Prepare the dressing by combining all ingredients in a jar fitted with a lid. Seal the jar and shake the salad dressing until the mayonnaise is fully dissolved.
Tear the kale leaves from the stems and discard the stems. Chop the kale into bite-sized pieces, rinse it, and dry it using a salad spinner.
Pour the dressing over the kale and gently massage until it is fully coated. Place in the fridge while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
Cutting around the core, cut the apple and then chopping into about ½-inch pieces. You can alternately use apple slices.
Cut the fennel bulb by cutting off the fronds and root, then remove the outer layer and discard.
