Kale with Cherries & Suzie’s Yellow Mustard

One of my favorite “superfoods,” kale can be enjoyed raw in salads or smoothies, or cooked up as a side dish or healthy addition to soups and casseroles.  Fast, healthy and a sure way to turn anyone who tries it into a fan of kale… if you haven’t cooked with kale, do this recipe first!  This is my #5 entry in Saucy Mama’s “Skinny Mama-Cooking With Mustard” contest and I have to confess, it is a solid tie with the Sweet Potato Fries for my favorite recipes I have entered!
