I made these to go on an antipasto type of platter for a superbowl party.
2 tsp fennel seeds
2 tsp finely grated orange zest
4 tbs fresh orange juice
1 tsp cracked black peppercorns
4 oz feta block cut into 24 cubes
24 fresh mint leaves
12 pitted green olives, cut in half
1/4 large English cucumber cut in 1/2 inch chunks
In a medium bowl, combine the fennel seeds, orange zest and juice and pepper. Gently stir in the feta. Marinate for 1 hour at room temperature of up to 3 hours in the refrigerator.
To assemble the skewers, push a mint leave about 3/4 inch up the toothpick, then add a chunk of cucumber, and an olive half. Gently place a cube of the marinated feta on the end.
