    Meanwhile, thread cherry tomatoes onto skewers. Fold basil leaves in half, and thread onto skewers. Thread head ends of shrimp, followed by olives, then tail ends of shrimp. Finally, thread feta cubes onto skewers. Serve immediately, or refrigerate up to 4 hours before serving.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    If you have trouble threading the shrimp and olives simultaneously, place the olives inside the shrimp before threading.
  • Tip 2
    These kabobs look great standing or laid flat. If you’d prefer that a few of them stand in the centre of your platter, don’t push the cocktail pick all the way through the feta so that the bottom of the cheese creates a flat surface.
