Grilled Avocado and Tomato Salad

This recipe was in the latest Kraft email that I received. It looks so good. I never knew you could grill avocado??

4 large avocadoes (1-1/2 lb./675 g)
3 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 cups grape tomatoes, cut in half
1/2 cup finely chopped red onions 2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup KRAFT Extra Virgin Olive Oil Pesto Parmesan Vinaigrette Dressing
1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted

HEAT barbecue to medium heat.

CUT avocados lengthwise in half; remove and discard pits. Scoop out flesh of each half in one piece with large spoon. Add to lemon juice in medium bowl; turn over to evenly coat both sides of each. Transfer avocados to barbecue; set juice aside for later use.

GRILL avocados 4 min. or until lightly browned on both sides, turning after 2 min. Return avocados to bowl of juice; turn over. Let stand in juice until cooled. Drain; discard juice. Cut avocados into 1/2-inch cubes; place in large bowl.

ADD all remaining ingredients except pine nuts; mix lightly. Transfer to platter; top with pine nuts.
