Look for frozen Chinese steamed buns at Asian specialty grocery stores. Or, if you'd rather, you can substitute mini pita breads for the buns.

Serves 14 (serving size: 1 bun)

1 cup rice vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons kosher salt
2 cups thinly sliced English cucumber
14 frozen Chinese steamed buns
2 1/2 cups leftover shredded skinless white meat turkey (about 12 1/2 ounces)
2 1/2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
1/3 cup cranberry sauce
4 green onions, cut into (1-inch) pieces

1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a small saucepan over high heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Pour vinegar mixture over cucumber. Let stand 20 minutes; drain.

2. Prepare buns according to package directions.

3. Combine turkey and hoisin in a bowl; toss to coat. Spread 1 teaspoon cranberry sauce on each bun. Top evenly with turkey mixture, cucumbers, and onions.
