    1. Shred the lettuce leaves and put them in a large shallow dish or individual serving dishes. Sprinkle the spring onions over the lettuce.

Peel, halve and deseed the papaya, and cut into 5 mm slices across the width. Scatter the avocado and papaya slices over the capsicum strips.
    3. Whisk all the dressing ingredients together and pour over the salad. Heat a small heavy saucepan, add the pepitas and toss them in the pan for a few minutes to toast them lightly. Sprinkle the pepitas over the salad, then serve.
