Preheat the barbecue to 190 °C (375 °F).
In a large bowl, combine asparagus, beets, peaches, maple syrup and 1 tbsp. of oil. Place vegetables and fruits in a grill basket and barbecue for 15 to 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, brush the chicken breasts with 2 tbsp. of oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook on the barbecue for 10 to 15 minutes.
On the second cooking surface of the barbecue, over low heat, toast the pecans for a few minutes. Over very low heat, drizzle with maple syrup and stir until caramelized. Spread pecans evenly on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
Cut asparagus into thirds. Place asparagus, beets, peaches, spinach, onion, cilantro, and caramelized pecans in a large bowl. Drizzle with the salad dressing to taste and toss gently.
Divide salad among four serving plates.
Cut the chicken breasts into strips and divide them among the plates. Top each serving with cheese.
