Arrange 4 slices whole-wheat country bread on a broiler-proof baking sheet; divide salad evenly among slices. Top slices with 2 ounces coarsely grated Fontina cheese; broil 2-3 minutes until golden.
Directions: Place a grill pan over high heat. Season 4 thin chicken cutlets (about 1 pound total) with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Grill until cooked through (about 3-4 minutes), turning once. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high.
Add in 1 cup frozen baby lima beans, thawed; 1/2 cup corn; and 1 pint grape tomatoes. Cook, tossing occasionally, until tomatoes burst (about 3-4 minutes).
