Irresistible Appetizer – Marinated Feta Cheese and Olive Skewers

Indulge in a burst of Mediterranean flavors with our Marinated Feta and Olive Skewers! Each savory bite is loaded with tangy feta cheese and plump olives, infused with fennel’s aromatic and slightly sweet flavor.

=== 🍽🍸🥩 RECIPE ===
8 ounces (225g) feta cheese, cut into 3/4 inch (2cm) cubes
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 tablespoon fennel seeds
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Zest of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup (7g) finely chopped mint
20 mint leaves
1/2 cucumber, peeled and seeded, cut into 1/2 inch (1 cm) pieces
10 pitted black olives cut in half
Black pepper
Cocktail skewers – 2 inch (5cm)

Toast the sesame seeds and fennel seeds in a dry skillet over low heat until nutty and golden. Let cool.

If brined, pat the feta dry and cut into 3/4 inch (2cm) cubes.

In a bowl, combine the seeds, lemon juice, lemon zest, oil, and black pepper. Stir to combine. Add the feta and gently toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours to allow the flavors to marry. Just before assembling, add the chopped mint, and stir to combine.

To assemble:
Thread 1 mint leaf, 1 olive half, 1 cucumber slice and 1 feta cube on each skewer. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
Makes 16 – 20 canapes.

Note: The feta can be marinated up to 3 days in advance. Skewers can be assembled up to 4 hours in advance.
