This recipe looked so good and so simple to make.  I found it to be a bit bland.  The original recipe called for cream cheese and I substituted it with the greek yogurt cream cheese, this was probably the reason for it being bland.  The fat in original cream cheese would have gave it more flavor.

A nice twist to plain coleslaw.  Of course bacon is always good on or with anything.  The apples gave it a sweet tartness to blend with the crunchy cabbage and creamy dressing.
