    Really liked this salad and I plan to add it to my regular menus. A bit time consuming. I did not use the grill, but pan browned the chicken and steamed the corn. I did brown the corn a bit in the pan also. Used canned beets. Marinaded the chicken all day. Great flavor! Substituted chili sauce with garlic for the sriracha. spinach was a perfect contrast to the meat and corn.

    I wouldn't change a thing with this recipe! It was amazing. Using fresh corn and beets is key. The chicken marinade was fantastic. Overall, it's the perfect mix of flavors. I'd definitely serve this next time to a group of friends! My husband and I ate every last bite.

    I have had this dish more than 3 times and I must say, I love it. I find the goat cheese and corn mixture perfect match with beets and chicken...I think the grilled corn and chicken add a great smoky flavor when combined with goat cheese. I find it very satisfying...both in taste and fullness. I love a great dinner salad and am always looking for something different!

    I made this for friends one night and everyone loved it, even my husband who usually thinks chicken is bland. The salad is good without the chicken or you can make the chicken itself and it is great.

    A big hit for Christmas dinner last year! Simple to prepare and beautiful when plated. I tossed the corn, chopped beets and spinach together, then topped with the chicken, goat cheese and dressing on a large platter... I'll definitely be serving this dish again.

    This is better than a five star rated recipe. All the people at our table want to have me serve this again soon! Great tasting, healthy, hardy, colorful and totally delicious. Thank you!!

    Excellent substantial meal. I was worried about the chicken being to spicy, but it was outstanding. I used yellow beets and roasted them, but otherwise followed exactly. Served with a whole grain bread.

    Made as directed except added extra lettuce. 6 ears of corn and 6 beets make WAY more than 2 cups each (1/3 cup for each serving!) I only used 3 beets and had 2/3 cup per serving. I have awhole container of corn to use up now. (I'm thinking Confetti Quesadillas :) Next time, I will only use three ears of corn and three beets, and a small shallot.

    Really great dinner salad. I skipped the goat cheese and pecans to cut down on fat; didn't miss them. The marinade is great! Will definitely make again.
