Mediterranean Marinated Cucumber Salad

I always get the holiday letdown the day after Christmas.   I desperately try and find things that remind me of summer.  This salad will do that.  

2 Cucumbers pealed and thinly sliced
2 tomatoes seeded and diced
1/2 a red onion julienne 
2 large avocados, peeled, pitted, and cubed
4 oz of feta cheese, crumbled
16 Calamata olives, pitted
8 fresh basil leaves chiffonade
3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 lemon, juiced
Sea Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a bowl, let stand for two hours, adjust seasoning, and serve, or refrigerate.
