Recipe Instructions

Preheat grill to medium heat.

Cover a large platter with the tomato quarters and set aside for later use.

Cook the avocados.
Place the avocado halves into a bowl and dribble over 2 tablespoons of olive oil, the juice of one of the lemons with salt and pepper to taste.  Place each avocado half flat side down on a hot open grill for about 30 to 45 seconds.  Only cook on the flat side.  When caramelized remove from the heat and place on top of the plated tomatoes.

Prepare the onions.
Squeeze the other lemon juice into another bowl and add the sliced red onion.  Mix well.  Add the remaining olive oil and season with salt and pepper.  Place the onion mix into the empty avocado pit holes and spoon over the remaining lemon juice and olive oil.

To serve.
Top with green goddess dressing, a sprinkle of pine nuts and grated cheese.  Serve immediately.
