  1. Cook the rice noodles to pack instructions. Drain and run under cold water to cool completely.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk the peanut butter, 1 tbsp soy sauce, and half the lime juice with 80ml water until smooth. Transfer to a small serving bowl and set aside.
  3. Whisk the vinegar, sugar and remaining soy sauce and lime juice in a mixing bowl. Add the rice noodles, leftover turkey, red cabbage, spring onions, carrots, chilli and cucumber; toss to coat.
  4. Fill a deep baking tray with hot water and dip in a rice wrapper until it softens. Lay on a board and arrange a generous amount of the turkey mix in the centre. Add 3-4 mint leaves across the middle, then tuck in the sides, fold over the top and roll down tightly to seal. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling.
  5. Arrange the rolls on a large serving board. Halve and serve with chopped peanuts scattered over and the peanut sauce alongside for dipping.
