A tricked-out take on lox and cream cheese

This recipe pairs a smoky fish with a tangy cheese and wrap things up nicely with the bite of a chive — the little onion that could.  

Snipping chives with kitchen shears or simply a pair of sharp clean scissors makes the task of finely chopping them quick and easy, which means you can go straight to the best part: eating the smoked salmon and goat cheese!
