Bacon Apple Slaw

I realize it's been ages since I've posted a recipe...I've been working a retail job that was so busy before Christmas that I actually resorted to eating frozen entrees (and no, I haven't found any that I liked, despite much experimentation).

4 cups shredded cabbage or pre-shredded broccoli slaw (I prefer the broccoli slaw, though I have to roughly chop it in order to get it past my band)
1 large Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and shredded
1 green onion, chopped
1/4 cup mayo (I use olive oil mayo)
1/4 cup sour cream (I used the lite version)
2 tablespoons honey mustard (or mix 1-1/2 tbl Dijon mustard with 1-2 tsp honey)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 tablespoons lemon juice
8 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled or chopped (I use a reduced-fat version when I can find it)

In a large bowl, whisk together the mayo, sour cream, mustard, salt, pepper and lemon juice. Add the veggies & apple and mix well.

Serve with bacon scattered on top. If you have leftovers, store the bacon separately from the coleslaw - mixing the two together will make the bacon soggy.
