This recipe is perfect for summer daylight, refreshing, and full of flavor. The cucumbers are marinated in olive oil, basil, and vinegar. This gives them a tangy flavor that is perfect for pairing with tomatoes and onions. I also like adding fresh herbs like parsley or mint to give it extra flavor!
