  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Cut pork tenderloin into 4 pieces; season generously with salt and pepper as well as garlic powder. Heat canola oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Swirl. Place seasoned pork in the pan and sear each side for 2-3 minutes or until browned.
  3. Transfer pork to a baking sheet lined with foil, leaving oil and pork juice in the pan. Bake the pork for 10-12 minutes or until its temperature reaches 145°F.
  4. Meanwhile, add onion and tomatoes in the pan and cook over medium heat for about 2-3 minutes until the tomatoes are softened. Add vinegar and sugar, stir until well combined.
  5. Stir kale, asparagus and basil into the pan. Taste, add more salt if desired. Cook 1 minute or until the kale is wilted.
  6. Transfer the salad to serving plates; slice pork and arrange on top of the salad. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
