Warm White Bean and Kale Salad with Dried Cranberries and Cashews

I bought a bag of kale instead of a bag of spinach this week. My plan was to figure out ways to get this power house vegetable IN me and hopefully IN my family, although unless I hide it, they aren’t game.

According to NutritionData.com, Kale…
