  2. Combine the olive oil and lime juice and brush over all sides of the avocados.
  3. Sprinkle the tops with kosher salt.

  5. Turn avocados over and place a spoonful of salsa in the center of each.
  6. Top each avocado with shredded cheese.
  7. Close or cover the grill and heat about 5 more minutes until the cheese is melted.
