Add olive oil, orange juice and zest, rosemary, garlic and hot pepper flakes to small saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture is warm and garlic is fragrant, about 2 minutes.

Alternately thread cheese, olives and pimientos among thirty 6” skewers. Transfer to serving plate; drizzle with marinade.
