12 cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese

-Cut pork into 1-in. cubes. Combine the next seven ingredients; rub over pork. Refrigerate, covered, until ready to grill. Meanwhile, make a glaze by whisking vinegar, honey, mustard, and oil. Set aside.

-On water-soaked wooden skewers, thread pork cubes, and fig halves. Grill, covered, on a greased rack over medium-high direct heat, turning occasionally, until a thermometer reads 145°, 8-10 minutes. During the last half of grilling, brush cooked surfaces frequently with glaze.

-Let skewers stand for 5 minutes; add a tomato to each. Transfer to a serving platter and sprinkle lightly with blue cheese and basil.
