  • Cook the rice as per the instructions on the packaging. Let it cool to just warm once it's done.
  • Drain the mackerel and transfer the contents of the can to a mixing bowl. Add the cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion, almonds, Greek yogurt, garlic powder, and herbs to the bowl. Season with salt and pepper. With a fork, gently mix the ingredients, flaking the mackerel in the process, until everything is well blended. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
