  1. Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold, mildly salted, water.  Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and simmer for 20-25 minutes until potatoes are fork tender but still intact.  Let cool.
  2. Heat a large pan over medium heat and add olive oil. Cut potatoes into quarters and add to the pan. Season with salt and pepper and cook until crispy and browned, about 12 minutes. Add garlic, thyme and lentils and stir for 2 minutes. Then add the kale, cover and cook for another 2-3 minutes until kale is starting to soften and wilt. Transfer to a large bowl and add dried cranberries and toasted nuts.
  3. Make the dressing by adding all dressing ingredients into a small bowl and whisking until combined. Pour dressing over salad and toss to coat.
