  1. In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese and yogurt until light and fluffy. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in the chopped chives.
  2. Spread a teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture onto each slice of bread and then divide the salmon among them topping each with a sliver. Top each canapé with cucumber, red onion and tomatoes. Season with a little bit of kosher salt and pepper. Garnish with the remaining chives. Serve immediately.
