In a serving dish, toss together the cucumber, tomatoes, red onion (0ptional), and feta.
In a small bowl or glass measuring cup, whisk together the oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, salt, and pepper.
Pour the dressing over the vegetables and toss. Sprinkle the basil over the top and gently stir in. Taste and season with more salt or pepper, if needed.
Eat right away or store in the fridge for up to 24 hours. Beware that the red onion flavor will get very strong after a few hours, so we suggest leaving out the red onion if you want to store it overnight.
Tip: If you want to eat this the next day, we suggest leaving the red onion out. It becomes too strong after sitting for a while.
