- Place avocado, cilantro, water, yogurt, lime juice, garlic and hot sauce in a blender or food processor; puree until smooth. Season to taste with lime zest, salt and pepper (you can make the dressing up to 8 hours in advance but stir in lime zest just before serving).
- Soak onion in a small bowl of ice water to help tame its bite.
- Meanwhile, off heat, coat a grill rack or grill pan with cooking spray; heat grill to medium-high heat.
- Season chicken with oil and jerk seasoning. Grill, turning once, until grill marks appear and chicken is no longer pink inside, about 6 minutes per side.
- Drain onion; squeeze dry.
- Place lettuce on a large platter and arrange hearts of palm, corn, pineapple, tomato, radish or jicama, peppers, cucumbers and red onion in separate rows over top; sprinkle with salt and freshly ground pepper (optional).
- Slice chicken on diagonal and arrange over vegetables; drizzle with dressing before serving.
