My friend made this for a holiday party. I was a bit wary at the combination; and while I've had mint in things, I've never eaten an actual mint leaf whole. But I gave it a try and the combination was incredible. I think about it all the time: salty and herby - very "fresh" tasting with a perception of sweetness from the mint. Finally I got the recipe, so I'm posting it here.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium bowl combine the fennel seeds, orange zest, orange juice, and pepper. Gently stir in the feta and marinate for 1 hour or more.
  2. To make the skewers, place a mint leaf about 3/4-inch up the skewer, then add an olive half, then a chunk of cucumber. Gently place a cube of the marinated feta on the end.
