1. Cut the heirloom tomatoes into chunks. Halve the cherry tomatoes. Peel the english cucumber (if desired), cut it into half lengthwise, then cut the halves into small chunks.

2. Combine the vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper in a serving dish. Whisk it together, taste and adjust seasoning. Add the vegetables and toss. Tear the basil leaves up, add them in and toss again.
