Apple Bacon Coleslaw

I saw this recipe HERE - but changed it just a bit.

Apple Bacon Coleslaw
1/4 c cider vinegar
1 c mayonnaise
1/3 c honey
1/4 c orange juice
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 medium cabbage, shredded
5 or 6 carrots, shredded
1 lb bacon fried crispy then broken up into small pieces
1 bunch green onions, thinly slice
3 apples, peeled, cored and shredded (I used gala)
juice from 1/2 fresh lemon

Mix the first 5 ingredients together for the dressing. I suggest you shred the apples last and quickly squeeze the lemon juice over the shredded apple - to preserve the color of the apples. I also set aside some of the bacon crumbles to add just before serving.

Mix everything in a large bowl and let sit in the fridge over night. This is always better if you let it sit for a day or so.

As you can imagine just by looking at the ingredients - it's fairly sweet. Make sure you taste it before serving - mine needed a little extra salt to balance the sweetness.
