Discover there's more to cauliflower than the Sunday classic of cauliflower cheese with this great tasting salad, perfect for mid week suppers.

Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Toss the cauliflower with 1tbsp each of the oil and vinegar and season.

Spread on a baking sheet with the pancetta and bake for 20 minutes. Add the nuts and bread for the final 10 minutes, tossing with the oil and cauliflower. Remove and set aside.

Next, prepare the dressing. In a small frying pan, heat the remaining oil and the garlic. When the garlic becomes light golden, remove the pan from the heat and add the sugar, chilli flakes and remaining vinegar. Return the pan to the heat and whisk the mixture together, until the sugar has dissolved.

In a large serving bowl, toss the crispy salad with the Peppadew peppers and the cauliflower mixture. Pour over the dressing, mix and serve.
