TURKEY-RICE PILAF (Dated Nov. 26th, 2009)

Wild rice, green peas, and pine nuts are three of my favorite things. Pair them with leftover Thanksgiving turkey, white wine vinegar and chicken broth for a winning 'what I am going to do with this leftover turkey' dish.

1 (6oz.) pkg. long-grain and wild rice mix
1 (10oz.) pkg. frozen English peas
3 cups chopped cooked turkey
1/2 cup toasted pine nuts
2 Tbsp. dry sherry
2 Tbsp. white wine vinegar
1/4 cup chicken broth
1/4 tsp. each of salt and pepper
cabbage leaves

Prepare rice mix according to package directions; set aside.
Cook peas according to package directions; drain well, and set aside.
Combine rice, peas, and remaining ingredients, except cabbage; toss. Serve hot or cold on cabbage leaves.
Serves 6.
