1 tablespoon chopped chives plus 2 teaspoons, divided
1 teaspoon lemon zest
⅓ cup finely chopped pecans or almonds
Combine cream cheese, salmon, Cheddar, yogurt, scallions, dill, 1 tablespoon chives and lemon zest in a medium bowl.
Coat a large piece of plastic wrap with cooking spray. Scoop the cheese mixture onto it. Using the plastic wrap to help you, form the mixture into a ball, then completely wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or for up to 2 days.
Just before serving, combine pecans (or almonds) and the remaining 2 teaspoons chives in a shallow dish. Roll the cheese ball in the mixture, pressing to adhere.
To make ahead: Prepare through Step 2 and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
