  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Remove pork from marinade, place it on a rimmed baking sheet, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Discard marinade. Roast pork until the internal temperature reaches between 145°F. (medium rare) and 160°F. (medium), on a meat thermometer, 25 to 30 minutes. Set aside to rest 10 minutes.

  • While pork is roasting, cook quinoa according to package directions. Drain any liquid that hasn’t absorbed, then cover and set aside. Cut pork into 1-inch pieces.

  • In a large bowl, combine pork and any cooking juices with quinoa, cherries, scallions and 2 tablespoons of almonds. Gently stir in kale or spinach, remaining 2 tablespoons of vinegar, and remaining 1 tablespoon of oil. Add more vinegar, oil, salt, and pepper to taste. Garnish with remaining 2 tablespoons of almonds and serve.
