¼ cup finely diced red onion
½ garlic clove, minced
1 can hearts of palm, drained, rinsed and diced
1 cup diced cherry tomatoes
⅓ cup diced cilantro

In a medium-small bowl, combine the coconut milk, lime zest and juice, red onion, and garlic. Stir, then add the hearts of palm, tomatoes, cilantro, jalapeño, salt, and pepper to taste. Set aside.
Heat a grill to medium-high heat. When the grill is preheated, slice the avocados in half, remove the pits, and drizzle each half with olive oil, lime juice, salt and pepper. Grill the avocado halves cut side down for 3 to 4 minutes or until char marks form.
