In This Recipe
Preheat the grill to medium-high. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. On a large rimmed baking sheet or platter, toss asparagus with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, farmers cheese, sour cream, dill, and vinegar. Set this dressing aside.
Place chicken and asparagus on grill. Grill chicken until charred and opaque throughout, about 8 minutes total. Grill asparagus, turning occasionally, until charred and tender, about 6 minutes total. Transfer chicken to a cutting board to cool for 5 minutes, then slice.
While chicken cools, arrange spinach, corn, and asparagus on a platter; add sliced chicken. Drizzle salad with dressing.
