3 cups shredded cooked chicken

1 bunch of scallions, cut into 1-inch pieces

1/4 cup dry-roasted unsalted cashew nuts

1 cup minced fresh coriander

1 red bell pepper, cut into julienne strips

For the dressing:

1/2 teaspoon dry mustard, dissolved in 1/2 teaspoon water

1 tablespoon soy sauce

3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

2 tablespoons hoisin sauce

1 teaspoon ground allspice, or to taste

1 teaspoon sugar

2 tablespoons Asian sesame oil
