Since avocados start browning once they’re cut, start by preparing everything else first.
Toast the pepitas in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring often, until they’re starting to turn golden on the edges and make little popping noises, about 3 to 5 minutes.
Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the chili powder, olive oil and pinch of salt. Set aside to cool.
Meanwhile, combine the chopped radish, green onion, herbs and jalapeño in a bowl, and set aside.
To prepare the dressing, whisk together the lime juice, olive oil, honey and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
You can slice or dice the avocados however you’d like, but for the prettiest slices, first cut the avocados in half and remove the pits. Then cut the halves in half again to make long quarters. Peel the avocado skin off each quarter and carefully slice it into long strips.
To assemble, place the avocado in a medium serving bowl or platter. Drizzle the dressing all over them. Stir the toasted pepitas into the herb mix, then spoon it over the avocados. Finish the salad with optional flaky salt and/or lime zest.
