1. Cook noodles per package directions. Place in a bowl, cover, and refrigerate until ready to serve.
2. While noodles chill, shred turkey and prepare vegetables and herbs. Keep ingredients separated in bowls or piled on a tray.
3. Divide noodles among the four plates; mound in the center of each plate. Divide the turkey into four servings and center a serving on top of the noodles. Drizzle ¼ cup of Thai peanut sauce on the turkey and noodles.
4. Divide vegetables between the 4 plates, keeping vegetables separate, so you have strong colors around the noodles. Mound scallions on top of the turkey; scatter mint and basil over the plates. Serve with extra peanut sauce on the side.
