Grilled Chicken Salad with Feta, Fresh Corn, and Blueberries

Looking for a strange, but surprisingly delicious new chicken salad recipe?
Look no further!  If you are like me and you are being forced to watch Pioneer Woman in the 5 o'clock hour because the Food Network unjustly fired Paula Deen, then you might have already seen this. 
I thought the flavors sounded weird together.  And after reading the comments on this recipe, I realized I am not alone!  But trust me, it works somehow.  I don't even love dill and I usually hate fruits in my salads, but this looked too beautiful not to at least try.
The only modifications I made were to omit celery, because I hate it, and to just add light sour cream instead of the entire mayo, sour cream, half and half dressing.  I was just trying to cut out some calories.  The result was a tangy, thick chicken salad that went great on a sandwich or a plate.
I can't wait to make this again.  I always buy blueberries and corn at the Farmers Market and I always have feta, so I see lots more of this recipe in my future!  Sometimes cooking outside of the box reaps some seriously yummy rewards!
