To make the creamy coleslaw: In a large bowl, toss together the cabbage, red peppers, and onions.
In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice, sugar, vinegar, celery seeds, basil, and black pepper.
Pour over the cabbage and toss to coat.
Set aside.
To make the turkey barbecue: Coat a grill rack or broiler pan with no-stick spray.
Preheat the grill or broiler.
In a small bowl, combine the paprika, basil, garlic powder, and red pepper.
Rub the spice mixture all over the turkey tenders.
Place the turkey on the prepared rack or pan.
Cook 4" from the heat for 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until no longer pink in the center when tested with a sharp knife.
Using a fork, shred the turkey following the grain of the meat.
Discard the tendon that runs the length of each tender.
In a large no-stick skillet, combine the scallions, ketchup, brown sugar, mustard, honey, vinegar, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, water, rosemary, garlic, and hot-pepper sauce.
Mix well.
Add the shredded turkey and cook over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes, or until heated through.
Divide the turkey mixture along the bottom halves of the sandwich buns.
Top with the coleslaw and the bun tops.
