How to Make It
Cook the couscous according to the package directions. In a large bowl, combine the couscous, almonds, cranberries, parsley, 1 tablespoon of the oil, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper.
Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of the remaining oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the lamb with the cumin and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Working in batches, cook to the desired doneness, 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare.
In a large bowl, whisk together the vinegar, the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Add the lettuce and onion and toss to combine. Serve with the lamb and couscous.
