Instructions
  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Place half of avocado in a bowl and mash with a fork until almost smooth. Add yogurt and next 3 ingredients to bowl; stir to combine. Dice remaining half of avocado. Add diced avocado, tomato, jalapeño, and ⅛ teaspoon salt to bowl; stir gently to combine.
