Ingredients

2 teaspoons fennel seeds
2 teaspoons orange zest
3 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 ounces feta cheese, cut into 24 (1/2-inch) cubes
24 (6-inch) wooden skewers
24 fresh mint leaves
12 pitted green olives, halved
1/4 large English cucumber, seeded and cut into 1/2-inch chunks

Preparation

1. Combine fennel seeds, orange zest and juice, and pepper. Gently stir in the feta and marinate for 1 hour at room temperature or up to 3 hours in the refrigerator. (Marinate overnight to save time.)

2. To assemble: Place 1 mint leaf on a skewer, about 3/4 inch up; add 1 olive half and 1 cucumber chunk. Place 1 cube of feta on the end. These can be made several hours in advance and stored in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Bring to room temperature before serving.
