Of course you could simply make a salad, but this is more fun, and the kabobs make delightfully unusual afterschool snacks or perfectly cheerful summer appetizers. If you like bell peppers, feel free to add those too!
1small garlic clove, peeled and minced or put through a garlic press
18-ounce block feta cheese, cut into cubes
1cucumber, quartered lengthwise, and cut into cubes
1(2 cups) cherry tomatoes
1cuppitted black or green olives
Put the lemon juice and zest, olive oil, mint, and garlic in the bowl and mix well. Add the feta and gently stir. Leave it to marinate while you prepare the other ingredients.
Thread the marinated feta, cucumber, tomatoes, and olives onto the skewers, alternating and arranging them however you like. (Tip: Push the skewers slowly and gently through the cheese cubes so that they won’t be inclined to crumble.) Serve right away.
