1. Toss the cabbage in a colander with 1 tablespoon salt. Set aside in the sink to drain, about 1 hour. Rinse, drain well, and pat dry.
2. Whisk the mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, sugar, celery seeds, cayenne and 1 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add the drained cabbage, carrots, apples, and scallions to the dressing. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a skillet over medium heat, turning until crisp and golden, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to cool. Crumble and stir into the coleslaw before serving.
